NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1995MNRAS.277..125H Visual search for galaxies near the northern crossing of the Supergalactic Plane by the Milky Way G. H. T. Hau, H. C. Ferguson, O. Lahav and D. Lynden-Bell Institute of Astronomy, Madingley Road, Cambridge CB3 0HA Space Telescope Science Institute, 3700 San Martin Drive, Baltimore, MD 21218 USA Accepted 1995 May 26. Received 1995 May 26; in original form 1994 December 6 ABSTRACT We have visually examined 12 Palomar red plates for galaxies at low Galactic latitude b, where the Supergalactic Plane (SGP) is crossed by the Galactic Plane (GP), at Galactic longitude l ~ 135^deg^. The catalogue consists of 2575 galaxy candidates, of which 462 have major axis diameter d => 0.8 arcmin (uncorrected for extinction). Galaxy candidates can be identified down to |b| ~ 0^deg^. One of our galaxy candidates (J24 = Dwingeloo 1) has recently been discovered independently at 21 cm by Kraan-Korteweg et al. as a nearby galaxy. Comparisons with the structures seen in the IRAS and UGC catalogues are made. We compare the success rate of identifying galaxies using the IRAS Point Source Catalogue under different colour selection criteria. The criteria that require both the 60- and 100-micron fluxes to be of high quality have the highest probability of selecting a galaxy (with d => 0.6 arcmin), but at the expense of selecting a smaller number of galaxies in total. Key words: catalogues - dust, extinction - galaxies: individual: Dwingeloo 1 - Local Group - large-scale structure of Universe infrared: galaxies.
