Fig. B.3


Demonstration of the minimum masking method on an artificial image of a shell galaxy. The shell component was blurred to simulate the observed blurriness of shells. The signal-to-noise ratio S/N varies in the horizontal direction. The ratio of the shell intensity to the galaxy body intensity Sh/B varies in the vertical direction. The number indicates our rating of prominence.
