Multicolor Surface Photometry of Lenticular Galaxies. I. The Data
We present multicolor surface and aperture photometry in the B, V, R,and K' bands for a sample of 34 lenticular galaxies from the UppsalaGeneral Catalogue. From surface photometric analysis, we obtain radialprofiles of surface brightness, colors, ellipticity, position angle, andthe Fourier coefficients that describe the departure of isophotal shapesfrom a purely elliptical form; we find the presence of dust lanes,patches, and ringlike structure in several galaxies in the sample. Weobtain total integrated magnitudes and colors and find that these are ingood agreement with the values from the Third Reference Catalogue.Isophotal colors are correlated with each other, following the sequenceexpected for early-type galaxies. The color gradients in lenticulargalaxies are more negative than the corresponding gradients inelliptical galaxies. There is a good correlation between B-V and B-Rcolor gradients, and the mean gradients in the B-V, B-R, and V-K' colorsare -0.13+/-0.06, -0.18+/-0.06, and -0.25+/-0.11 mag dex-1 inradius, respectively.

Galaxy coordinates. II. Accurate equatorial coordinates for 17298 galaxies
Using images of the Digitized Sky Survey we measured coodinates for17298 galaxies having poorly defined coordinates. As a control, wemeasured with the same method 1522 galaxies having accurate coordinates.The comparison with our own measurements shows that the accuracy of themethod is about 6 arcsec on each axis (RA and DEC).

H2O maser emission in the galaxies M51 and NGC 253
H2O maser emission has been detected from the nuclei of the galaxies M51and NGC 253. The total isotropic luminosities are 5.0 and less than 3.7solar luminosities for two epochs of M51 and 2.5 and 3.4 solarluminosities for NGC 253, which are the same order of magnitude as thoseof the most luminuous Galactic maser W49N and masers in the galaxies M82and NGC 6946. The flux densities of the maser emission have varied byabout factors of 2 and 4 for M51 and NGC 253, respectively, in a year.
