1997A&A...327..963P The surface brightness and distance of Dwingeloo 1. Phillipps S., Davies J.I. Received 28 April 1997/Accepted 21 July 1997 Abstract. The Tully-Fisher distance to the galaxy Dwingeloo 1, recently discovered very close to the Galactic Plane, is highly uncertain because of the range of possible foreground extinction values which have been suggested. We show that very high values of A_B_ (~10 magnitudes) or low values (~4 magnitudes) are unreasonable since the intrinsic surface brightness implied for Dwingeloo 1 would be unrealistically high or low for a mid type disc galaxy. Obtaining 'normal' surface brightness values requires A_B_ close to 6 magnitudes. We therefore concur with distance estimates which suggest values ~3Mpc. Key words: galaxies: individual: Dwingeloo 1 - galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: photometry - dust, extinction
