Fig. 2


Example of an ArcEllipse created by PaintArcs using a Sérsic profile. The left panel shows the pure arc, created using rc = 17′′, re = 0.6′′, θ0 = 40°, n = 1, e1 = 0.85, e2 = 0.75, m = 21, and mzpt = 31.83. The pixel scale of the image is 0.154′′. The middle panel shows the application of a Gaussian convolution (FWHM = 1.1′′) on the pure arc image. The right panel shows the effect of adding Poisson noise to the convolved arc.

This figure is made of several images, please see below:
