ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs Description: (Abstract in the documentation file "docu.txt") The "Southern Galaxy Catalogue" provides a finding list of galaxies larger than about 1.5 to 2 arc minutes, south of declination -17 degrees. It includes, as far as possible, precise positions, morphological types, luminosity classifications, and diameters. It is essentially complete for logD>1.52. Notes: * Detail, see "docu.txt" (document) file. * The remark flag 'r' in column 68 of the original "catalog" file has been shifted to column 74 in accordance with the other case of full EU name.
