We carried out CCD photometry in the Johnson-Cousins B and R bands of 23 dwarf galaxies: SDIG, ESO 410-17, KK11, ESO 245-05, KKs3, KK27, KK38, KK40, IC 4662, KK244, KK246, KK247, KK248, KK249, KK253, KK255, KK256, KK257, KK258, KK259, UGCA 438, ESO 347-17, and UGCA 442. Both isolated galaxies and members of the Sculptor group and the NGC 1313 group were observed. The galaxy sample is characterized by a median distance of 9.3 Mpc, and median absolute magnitude of -14.8 mag. The central surface brightnesses are in the range from 22.2 to 24.4 mag arcsec-2 in B.
Key words: galaxies: dwarf / galaxies: photometry / galaxies: irregular / galaxies: general / galaxies: evolution
Based on observations obtained with CTIO 1.5-m telescope, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy Inc. (AURA), under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation as part of the National Optical Astronomy Observatories.
