Due to local homogeneity, the differential counts at bright magnitude follows an euclidean slope (γ ∼ 0.6) in all seven band up to mAB ∼< 22 ÷ 19 from U to K .
The Optical Extragalactic Background Light from Resolved Galaxies
Extragalactic background light per magnitude bin, 10−0.4(mAB+48.6)N (m), as a function of U (fil led circles), B (open circles), V (fil led pentagons), I (open squares), J (fil led triangles), H (open triangles), and K (fil led squares) magnitudes.
