NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1998MNRAS.300..417R The Durham/UKST Galaxy Redshift Survey - V. The catalogue A. Ratcliffe, T. Shank, Q. A. Parker, A. Broadbent, F. G. Watson, A. P. Oates, C. A. Collins and R. Fong Accepted 1998 June 9. Received 1998 May 27; in original form 1997 December 30 ABSTRACT We present the radial velocities and blue, optical magnitudes for all of the galaxies within the Durham/UKST Galaxy Redshift Survey. This catalogue consists of ~2500 galaxy redshifts to a limiting apparent magnitude of b_J_ ~ 17 mag, covering a ~1500-deg^2^ area around the South Galactic Pole. The galaxies in this survey were selected from the Edinburg-Durham Southern Galaxy Catalogue and were sampled, in order of apparent magnitude, at a rate of one galaxy in every three. The spectroscopy was performed at the 1.2-m UK Schmidt Telescope in Australia using the FLAIR multi-object spectrograph. We show that our radial velocity measurements made with this instrument have an empirical accuracy of +/-150 km s^-1^. The observational techniques and data reduction procedures used in the construction of this survey are also discussed. This survey demonstrates that the UKST can be used to make a three-dimensional map of the large-scale galaxy distribution, via a redshift survey to b_J_ ~ 17 mag, over a wide area of the sky. Key words: catalogues - galaxies: clusters: general - galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: general - cosmology: observations - large-scale structure of Universe.
