Near Infrared H and tex2html_wrap_inline951 surface photometry of the three nearby galaxies NGC 2366, NGC 2403 and NGC 4236, used as local calibrators of the Tully-Fisher relation, was obtained using the 2562 NICMOS3 IR array MAGIC attached to the tex2html_wrap_inline959 telescope of Calar Alto. The present measurements are compared with the aperture photometry available in the literature. Surface brightness profiles and integrated magnitudes are given. gif
