Probing stellar populations in the outskirts of NGC 4244
Sarah Buehler, Annette Ferguson, Mike Irwin, Nobuo Arimoto, Pascale Jablonka

We present the first results of a wide-field photometric survey of the nearby edge-on system NGC 4244 carried out with Suprime-Cam on Subaru. We will discuss the spatial distribution and nature of resolved stellar populations at large radius in the disk and above the plane, and assess evidence for a thick disk and/or stellar halo in this system.
