J/AJ/133/2097 FIRST "Winged" and X-shaped radio source candidates (Cheung, 2007)

FIRST "Winged" and X-shaped radio source candidates. Cheung C.C. <Astron. J., 133, 2097-2121 (2007)> =2007AJ....133.2097C
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, radio ; Photometry, SDSS Keywords: galaxies: active - galaxies: jets - quasars: general - radio continuum: galaxies Abstract: A small number of double-lobed radio galaxies (17 from our own census of the literature) show an additional pair of low surface brightness "wings," thus forming an overall X-shaped appearance. Using the VLA FIRST survey database, we are compiling a large sample of winged and X-shaped radio sources for such studies. As a first step toward this goal, an initial sample of 100 new candidate objects of this type are presented in this paper. File Summary:

Note (1): Based on J2000.0 equinox positions in right ascension and declination. Positions are of the optical counterparts when identified in the SDSS (most widely adopted), USNO, and APM catalogs, or other published works (see r_rmag). When the optical counterparts were not catalogued, less precise positions were estimated directly from the DSS or FIRST images (Figure 4). Note (2): SDSS model magnitudes were preferred whenever available. Note (3): the asterisk (*) indicates a USNO magnitude for this point source obviously extended in the DSS images. Note (4): the asterisk (*) indicates an anomalously large g-r value. Inspection of SDSS data at the five-bands show inconsistent g-band magnitudes in these cases, and more reliable colors are u-r=1.7 (J1247+4646) and 2.2 (J1411+0907).
