J/A+AS/104/1    Faint ring-shaped galaxies near South Pole (Faundez-Abans+ 1994)

Search for faint ring-shaped galaxies in the -77 to -87deg declination interval Faundez-Abans M., Cuevas H., Hertling G. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 104, 1 (1994)> =1994A&AS..104....1F
ADC_Keywords: Galactic pole, south; Surveys; Galaxies, ring Keywords: surveys - galaxies: structure of Abstract: A list of probable ring galaxies with a limiting magnitude of 17.5 has been prepared based on visual inspection of the film copies of the J SRC/ESO survey. About 88% of the sample of 125 selected objects seem to be new, hitherto unrecognized as ring galaxies. The candidate objects have been classified following the ring structure and the nucleus appearance. File Summary:
