post-starburst images

I started making some large-angle jpgs of low-redshift post-starburst galaxies (really just post-starburst nuclei, since the SDSS fibers are small); the first few can be viewed at today's research page. The circles are spaced at intervals of 100 h-1 kpc at the Blanton-inferred distance to the object.

So far (randomly) only dwarf galaxies have images; more images are being made as we blog.
