1989ApJS...70..687H A PHOTOMETRIC CATALOG OF COMPACT GROUPS OF GALAXIES PAUL HICKSON, ENRICO KINDL, AND JASON R. AUMAN Department of Geophysics and Astronomy, University of British Columbia Received 1988 October 26; accepted 1989 January 6 ABSTRACT We present astrometry, photometry, and morphological types, derived from CCD images, for 463 galaxies in the 100 compact groups selected by Hickson. Some minor revisions to the membership of the original catalog are made, based on these new images. The completeness of the catalog is considered as a function of group magnitude and Galactic lattitude. At high Galactic lattitude (b> 30^deg^), the catalog is estimated to be 90% complete for groups with total B_T_ magnitude 13.0 or less. It is less complete at lower Galactic lattitude because of obscuration and high stellar density. Subject headings: galaxies: cluster - galaxies: photometry
