J/AJ/105/1637      Redshifts in equatorial strip                  (Huchra+ 1993)

The morphological catalogue of galaxies equatorial survey Huchra J., Latham D.W., Nicolaci da Costa L., Pellegrini P.S., Willmer C.N.A. <Astron. J. 105, 1637 (1993)> =1993AJ....105.1637H
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, optical; Regional catalog; Radial velocities; Redshifts Abstract: We present 865 redshifts of galaxies located in the equatorial strip -17.5 deg ≤ Dec. ≤ -2.5 deg in the right ascension range 20 h ≤ R.A. ≤ 5 h. Redshifts have been obtained for the complete sample of all 833 galaxies in the Morphological Catalog of Galaxies with magnitudes brighter than m = 14.5 (corresponding approximately to m(Zwicky) = 15.0). This sample also includes three galaxies from other sources with more reliable magnitudes, satisfying this limit, and 29 fainter galaxies, usually companions of the galaxies in the magnitude limited sample. Our maps of a very large volume of nearby space demonstrate a variety of coherent large scale structures which include large voids, 20-50 h-1 Mpc in diameter and large walls at least 70 h-1 Mpc across.

Note (1): from the Morphological Catalog of Galaxies (MCG, Cat. VII/62 and VII/100). Occasionally these can be greatly in error and better positions were adopted whenever possible. Note (2): generally from MCG. Especially for brighter galaxies, more accurate magnitudes were taken from other sources, even though they are not exactly on the same photometric system (see file "refs.dat") Note (3): Additional types (beyond de Vaucouleurs' range) are from the CfA Redshift Catalog (Huchra et al. 1992, available from the NSSDC and CDS, Cat. VII/164), e.g., type "20" is a "Spiral galaxy" that has not been subclassified further.
