For the purchase of a 4 Gb external hard drive to be used for the study of the stellar populations in the four dwarf elliptical Andromeda Galaxy companions, with the aim of solving a long-lasting question about the distribution of stellar ages in these galaxies. The study will, in addition, provide definitive constraints on the age of the Andromeda Galaxy stars and will clarify the nature of the luminous asymptotic giant branch stars.
