J/A+A/446/19        ENACS. VIII. Galaxies classification         (Thomas+, 2006)

The ESO Nearby Abell Cluster Survey. VIII. Morphological and spectral classification of galaxies. Thomas T., Katgert P. <Astron. Astrophys. 446, 19 (2006)> =2006A&A...446...19T
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Morphology ; Spectral types Keywords: galaxies: clusters: general - galaxies: fundamental parameters - galaxies: statistics Abstract: We determine the morphological types of 2295 galaxies from the ESO Nearby Abell Cluster Survey (ENACS) from CCD images obtained with the Dutch telescope on La Silla. A comparison with morphological types from the literature for 450 of our galaxies shows that the reliability of our classification is quite comparable to that of other classifiers. We recalibrate the ENACS spectral classification with the new morphological types, and find that early- and late-type galaxies can be distinguished from their spectra with 83% reliability. Ellipticals and S0 galaxies can hardly be distinguished on the basis of their spectra, but late spirals can be classified from the spectrum alone with more than 70% reliability. Description: This table gives the morphological, spectral and adopted classifications of 4879 galaxies in the ESO Nearby Cluster Survey (or ENACS); see 1996, Cat. J/A+A/310/8 and 1998, Cat. J/A+AS/129/399 (with link to the original ENACS catalogue). All galaxies have at least a morphological or a spectral type; of the adopted types 2102 are based on morphological types, 2446 on spectral types and 331 on a combination of the two. File Summary:
