Abstract

High signal to noise images have been obtained of a large sample of shell galaxies. We examine the photometric profiles of the shells of two galaxies from this sample at small and large radii in order to understand the dynamical history of the shells themselves. The shape of the profiles permit estimates of the cone angle of the shell thus enabling a three dimensional reconstruction of the shell feature to be made.
