NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1989MNRAS.236..207M An extended galaxy redshift survey - I. The catalogue N. Metcalfe, R. Fong and T. Shanks Physics Department, University of Durham, South Road, Durham DH1 3LE D. Kilkenny South Africa Astronomical Observatory, P0 Box 9, Observatory 7935, South Africa Accepted 1988 July 27. Received 1988 July 12; in original form 1988 February 19 Summary. We present redshifts and blue magnitudes for a sample of 264 `field' galaxies virtually complete to a limiting magnitude of b_j_~16.80 mag. The galaxies were selected by sampling one galaxy in every three in order of apparent magnitude on each of nine high-latitude UK Schrmidt (UKST) fields. Photometric data were provided by COSMOS machine measures of UKST plates, zero-pointed with CCD photometry. The spectra data came from observations with the 1.9-m telescope at the south African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO), and the resulting radial velocities have a precision of ~ +/- 130 km s^-1^. This survey augments substantially the Durham/AAT redshift survey. In this paper we discuss the observational techniques and reduction procedures.
