1995AJ....110..613v A PRELIMINARY CLASSIFICATION SCHEME FOR THE CENTRAL REGIONS OF LATE-TYPE GALAXIES SIDNEY VAN DEN BERGH Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, National Research Council, 5071 West Saanich Road, Victoria, British Columbia V8X 4M6, Canada Electronic mail: vandenbergh@dao.nrc.ca Received 1995 February 16; revised 1995 March 23 ABSTRACT The large-scale prints in The Carnegie Atlas of Galaxies have been used to formulate a classification scheme for the central regions of late-type galaxies. Systems that exhibit small bright central bulges or disks (type CB) are found to be of earlier Hubble type and of higher luminosity than galaxies that do not contain nuclei (type NN). Galaxies containing nuclear bars, or exhibiting central regions that are resolved into individual stars and knots, and galaxies with semistellar nuclei, are seen to have characteristics that are intermediate between those of types CB and NN. The presence or absence of a nucleus appears to be a useful criterion for distinguishing between spiral galaxies and magellanic irregulars. ========================================================================= 1995AJ....110.3116v ERRATUM "A PRELIMINARY CLASSIFICATION SCHEME FOR THE CENTRAL REGIONS OF LATE-TYPE GALAXIES" (ASTRON.
