1992ApJ...395...75H THE LARGE-SCALE VELOCITY FIELD BEYOND THE LOCAL SUPERCLUSTER MINGSHENG HAN Palomar Observatory, California Institute of Technology Received 1991 August 30; accepted 1992 February 18 ABSTRACT Relative distances of 16 clusters of galaxies in the redshift range from 3000 to 11,000 km s^-1^ are measured using the I-band Tully-Fisher relation. Different techniques of deriving distances of clusters using a distance indicator are discussed and compared in regard to the sample selection bias. The large-scale peculiar velocity field as traced by our sample clusters is found to be highly nonrandom, and appears to be a coherent flow, in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) frame; the flow is towards the general direction of the "Great Attractor," with an amplitude of some 400-600 km s^-1^ at the position of the Local Group (LG). Subject headings: galaxies: clustering - galaxies: distances and redshifts
