J/PASP/101/360      Revised coordinates for SGC galaxies       (Spellman+, 1989)

Revised coordinates for 373 selected objects in the southern galaxy catalogue. Spellman K., Madore B.F., Helou G. <Publ. Astron. Soc. Pac. 101, 360 (1989)> =1989PASP..101..360S
ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Positional data Keywords: galaxy catalog - improved coordinates Abstract: We have determined improved positions for 373 galaxies listed in the Southern Galaxy Catalogue of Corwin, de Vaucouleurs, and de Vaucouleurs (1985, Cat. VII/116) as having poor coordinates. The revised coordinates are expected to be good to 6 arcsec (rms) in each coordinate. File Summary:
