J/AZh/77/569 Southern isolated triple systems of galaxies (Karachentseva+, 2000)

Southern isolated triple systems of galaxies. Karachentseva V.E., Karachentsev I.D. <Astron. Zh. 77, 569 (2000)> =2000AZh....77..569K =2000ARep...44..501K
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, optical Abstract: Using the ESO/SERC and POSS-I surveys we selected 76 isolated triple systems of galaxies with DE←3°. For each triplet the equatorial coordinates, type of configuration, angular diameters, apparent angular separation of the components, morphological types, total magnitudes and other characteristics are presented.

Note (1): Isolation criteria: + component is isolated, - component is not isolated, Note (2): ESO diameters were translated to the POSS-I diameters a(o)=0.8078a(j), b(o)=0.7827b(j) Note (3): Separations refer to components: m_Seq = 'A' : A-B m_Seq = 'B' : B-C m_Seq = 'C' : C-A Note (4): Configuration type is indicated as: T = Triangle D = Hierarchical L = linear Note (5): - means merged identification.
