AbstractWe summarize findings from imaging surveys of 143 early-type galaxies in the Virgo and Fornax Clusters. Using deep HST images in the F475W (g) and F850LP (z) band-passes obtained with the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), we have examined the central structure of the program galaxies, finding clear evidence for a compact stellar nucleus in ∼ 75% of the sample. The formation of early-type galaxies of low- and intermediate-mass is often – but not always – accompanied by the formation of a compact stellar nucleus.
