VII/232             Nebulae in the Magellanic Clouds          (Davies+ 1976)

The nebular complexes of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. Davies R.D., Elliot K.H., Meaburn J. <Mem. R. Astron. Soc. 81, 89 (1976)> =1976MmRAS..81...89D
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; Nebulae Abstract: Long exposures of the complexes of ionized hydrogen in both the LMC and SMC have been taken with the 48-in. SRC Schmidt camera through an Hα+[N II] interference filter to 100Å bandwidth. These plates and identifying charts are presented here in a form in which little information is lost. A catalog of many individual emission regions in both these galaxies is also compiled. File Summary:

Note (1): Henize number, (1956ApJS....2..315H), LHA 120-N NNNA for LMC, LHA 115-N NNNA for SMC in Simbad Note (2): Intensity flags: very faint (vf) through faint (f), fairly bright (fb), bright (vf) to very bright (vf) Note (3): Comparison between these nebulosities and sources on the radio surveys at 6cm of McGee et al. (1972AuJPh..25..613M) and at 11 cm of Broten (1972AuJPh..25..599B). The radio spectral indices, defined by S∝να, are from McGee & Newton (1972AuJPh..25..619M)
