The HRS covers an area of more than 12°x12° on the sky centered at approximately RA=03h19m, DE=-50°02'. Description: Observations covering the 12°x14° area in the HRS were carried out on the 1.2m UK Schmidt Telescope (UKST) of the Anglo-Australian Observatory (AAO) in 2002 October and November. All observations were carried out as part of the 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) program being undertaken by the AAO (Wakamatsu et al. 2003ASPC..289...97W). File Summary:
