RC magnitude distributions for lines of sight for Galactic longitudes l = −2°, 0°, and +2° and Galactic latitudes b = −3.0°, −5.5°, and −8.5°. The bottom panel shows the simulated magnitudes derived from the distance distribution of particles of the B/P bulge model from Ness et al. (2014) at the corresponding lines of sight for b = −8.5°. All the distributions at the same Galactic latitude have been normalized by the maximum of the central distribution (l = 0°). The solid black line shows the mean of the RC distribution at (l,b) = (0°,−3.0°) and the dashed lines show the maximum separation of the two RCs at (l,b) = (0°,−8.5°).
