2MASS project is ready to go

Now we agree on the strategy of 2MASS galaxy structure analysis pipeline. 5reff cut seems to be reasonable and stellar masking using shape parameter shows reasonably good image except for bright stars where subtraction is incomplete and funny residuals are remaining. This image will be masked by hand later.

As a pilot study, I will carry BD decomposition for galaxies with 7<= K <=9 which contains ~430 galaxies.
