Beginning of ReadMe : J/A+A/380/441 Galaxies behind Southern Milky Way. II. (Woudt+, 2001) ================================================================================ A catalogue of galaxies behind the Southern Milky Way. II. The Crux and Great Attractor regions (l=289-338deg) Woudt P.A., Kraan-Korteweg R.C. <Astron. Astrophys. 380, 441 (2001)> =2001A&A...380..441W ================================================================================ ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Galaxies, optical ; Galaxies, IR ; Morphology Keywords: catalogues - surveys - ISM: dust, extinction - galaxies: fundamental parameters - cosmology: large-scale structure of the Universe Abstract: In this second paper of the catalogue series of galaxies behind the southern Milky Way, we report on the deep optical galaxy search in the Crux region (289deg< l< 318deg and -10deg< b< 10deg) and the Great Attractor region (316deg< l< 338deg and -10deg< b< 10deg). The galaxy catalogues are presented, a brief description of the galaxy search given, as well as a discussion on the distribution and characteristics of the uncovered galaxies. A total of 8183 galaxies with major diameters D> 0.2 arcmin were identified in this  850 square degree area: 3759 galaxies in the Crux region and 4423 galaxies in the Great Attractor region. Of the 8183 galaxies, 229 (2.8%) were catalogued before in the optical (3 in radio) and 251 galaxies have a reliable (159), or likely (92) cross-identification in the IRAS Point Source Catalogue (3.1%). A number of prominent overdensities and filaments of galaxies are identified. They are not correlated with the Galactic foreground extinction and hence indicative of extragalactic large-scale structures. Redshifts obtained at the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) for 518 of the newly catalogued galaxies in the Crux and Great Attractor regions (Fairall et al., 1998, Cat. J/A+AS/127/463; Woudt et al., 1999, Cat. J/A+A/352/39) confirm distinct voids and clusters in the area here surveyed. With this optical galaxy search, we have reduced the width of the optical `Zone of Avoidance' for galaxies with extinction-corrected diameters larger than 1.3' from extinction levels A_B> 1.0mag to A_B> 3.0mag: the remaining optical Zone of Avoidance is now limited by |b|< 3deg (see Fig. 16).
