Of the 391 objects observed, we find 111 are bona fide members of Abell 3653. Description: Our observations for this work come from 2dF spectroscopy. These observations are entirely performed in service mode on the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT),meaning that we have a mixture of gratings (300B and 270R), and physical conditions. File Summary:

Note (1): Usually, the best template spectra that provides the best redshift is the one with the highest TDV. Note (2): Quality flag as follows: 4 = certain redshift (all spectral features, both emission and absorption are in the correct place, the spectra has a good signal to noise ratio and/or TDV with an obvious single cross-correlation peak). 3 = spectra that is very probably correct [it has many or all of the spectral features in the right locations and a reasonable signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio]
