J/A+A/458/341       LSBG in Arecibo HI Strip Survey        (Trachternach+, 2006)

An optical search for Low Surface Brightness Galaxies in the Arecibo HI Strip Survey. Trachternach C., Bomans D.J., Haberzettl L., Dettmar R.-J. <Astron. Astrophys. 458, 341 (2006)> =2006A&A...458..341T

It contains 306 galaxies within 14.3deg2 in a region targeted at an area covered by the Arecibo HI Strip Survey. The galaxies were selected to have an apparent minimum diameter of 18-arcsec at the limiting surface brightness of approximately 25.2mag/arcsec2. File Summary:
