Fig. 3.


Left side: distribution of Sérsic index n in the 12 bands for the 79 galaxies contained in the final sample. The magenta line shows the respective mean, and the filter name is given in each panel. In all 12 bands our mean Sérsic indices show typical values for early-type galaxies. Right side: analogously to the left side, the distributions for the effective radius re are shown. A clear trend to smaller sizes with increasing wavelength is visible.
