Note (1): Known catalogs: NGC (N),IC (I), UGC (U, Nilson,1973), UGCA (UA, Nilson,1974), DDO (D, van den Bergh,1966), ESO/Uppsala (E, Lauberts,1982), PGC (P, Paturel et al. 1996) and Karachentsevs' lists (KK, KKR, KKH, KKSG, KKs) usually in chronological preference. Note (2): Corrected for AB and for internal B band absorption in galaxy. Note (3): Those with 2 numbers after coma are determined by correlation "morphological type - color index"; and with 3 numbers- are taken from 2MASS XSC catalogue. Note (6): The NASA Extragalactic Database (NED) is the main source with additions from the recent publications by Lauberts, 1982, VII/34, Bremnes et al. (1998A&AS..129..313B, 1999A&AS..137..337B, 2000A&AS..141..211B), Parodi et al. (2002, Cat. J/A+A/388/29), etc.; for some dwarf LSB galaxies their magnitudes are known with an accuracy of ∼0.5mag only. Note (7): From Schlegel et al. (1998ApJ...500..525S); estimates of Ag for some galaxies situated in the Zone of Avoidance (for instance, Maffei I) were made from their individual color. Note (8): Method is designated as follows: cep = from the luminosity of Cepheids; rgb = from the luminosity of the tip of RGB; sbf = via fluctuation of surface brightness; bs = from the luminosity of the brightest stars; tf = from Tully-Fisher relation; mem = from membership in the known groups; h = from the Hubble relation LGVel=H0*D with the mean local Hubble parameter H0=72km/s/Mpc (Karachentsev et al., 2004, Cat. J/AJ/127/2031), coinciding with its global value 72±8km/s/Mpc (Freedman et al., 2001ApJ...553...47F). Note (9): SuBr=(B-Ab-Ai)+5*log(ac)+8.63, where Ai is internal B band absroption in galaxy, ac is angular diameter corrected for inclination.
