1989AJ.....97.1576M A SOUTHERN REDSHIFT SURVEY. I. ACCURATE REDSHIFTS FOR 500 GALAXIES OBSERVED AT SAAO J. W. MENZIES AND I. M. COULSON South African Astronomical Observatory, P.O. Box 9, Observatory 7935, South Africa W. L. W. SARGENT Palomar Observatory 105-24, California Institue of Technology, Pasadena, California 91125 Received 31 October 1986; revised 22 February 1989 ABSTRACT We present radial velocities for about 500 galaxies observed with an intensified Reticon photon-counting detector attached to the 1.9m telescope at the Sutherland field station of SAAO. The velocities were determined by cross correlation with standard velocity templates, from measured wavelengths of emission lines, or from both techniques, with spectra covering the wavelength range from 3700 to 5400 A. The final velocities appear to have the same zero point as H I radio velocities, and have standard deviations of the order of 35 km s^-1^, though cross-correlation velocities on their own may have significantly larger errors.
