J/AJ/123/1200       Aquarius superclusters. I.               (Caretta+, 2002)

The Aquarius superclusters. I. Identification of clusters and superclusters. Caretta C.A., Maia M.A.G., Kawasaki W., Willmer C.N.A. <Astron. J. 123, 1200 (2002)> =2002AJ....123.1200C
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Photometry ; Redshifts Keywords: galaxies: clusters: general - large-scale structure of universe - surveys Abstract: We study the distribution of galaxies and galaxy clusters in a 10°x6° field in the Aquarius region. In addition to 63 clusters in the literature, we have found 39 new candidate clusters using a matched-filter technique and a counts-in-cells analysis. From redshift measurements of galaxies in the direction of these cluster candidates, we present new mean redshifts for 31 previously unobserved clusters, while improved mean redshifts are presented for 35 other systems.
