摘要In a first of a series of studies of the Halpha + [N II] emission from nearby spiral galaxies, we present measurements of Halpha + [N II] emission from H II regions in M81. Our method uses large-field CCD images and longslit spectra and is part of the ongoing Beijing-Arizona-Taipei-Connecticut Sky Survey ( the BATC survey). The CCD images are taken with the National Astronomical Observatories of China (NAOC) 0.6/0.9m f/3 Schmidt telescope at the Xinglong Observing Station, using a multicolor filter set. Spectra of 10 of the brightest H II regions are obtained using the NAOC 2.16 m telescope with a Tek 1024 x 1024 CCD. The continua of the spectra are calibrated by flux-calibrated images taken from the Schmidt observations. We determine the continuum component of our Halpha + [N II] image via interpolation from the more accurately measured backgrounds ( M81 starlight) obtained from the two neighboring ( in wavelength) BATC filter images. We use the calibrated fluxes of Halpha + [N II] emission from the spectra to normalize this interpolated, continuum-subtracted Halpha + [N II] image. We estimate the zero-point uncertainty of the measured Halpha + [N II] emission flux to be similar to 8%. A catalog of Halpha + [N II] fluxes for 456 H II regions is provided, with those fluxes being on a more consistent linear scale than previously available. The logarithmically binned Halpha + [ N II] luminosity function of H II regions is found to have slope alpha = - 0.70, consistent with previous results ( which allowed alpha = -0.5 to - 0.8). From the overall Halpha + [ N II] luminosity of the H II regions, the star formation rate of M81 is found to be similar to 0.68 M-. yr(-1), modulo uncertainty with extinction corrections.
