2001AJ....122.2893W REDSHIFTS FOR 2410 GALAXIES IN THE CENTURY SURVEY REGION GARY WEGNER AND JOHN R. THORSTENSEN Department of Physics and Astronomy, 6127 Wilder Laboratory, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH 03755-3528 MICHAEL J. KURTZ, WARREN R. BROWN, DANIEL G. FABRICANT, MARGARET J. GELLER, AND JOHN P. HUCHRA Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, 60 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138 RONALD O. MARZKE Department of Astronomy and Physics, San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132 AND SHOKO SAKAI Division of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of California, Los Angeles, 405 Hilgard Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1562 Received 2001 June 7; accepted 2001 August 15 ABSTRACT The Century Survey strip covers 102 deg^2^ within the limits 8.5^h^ <= {alpha} <= 16.5^h^, 29.0^deg^ <= {delta} <= 30.0^deg^, equinox B1950.0. The strip passes through the Corona Borealis supercluster and the outer region of the Coma cluster. Within the Century Survey region, we have measured 2410 redshifts that constitute four overlapping complete redshift surveys: (1) 1728 galaxies with Kron-Cousins R_ph_ <= 16.13 covering the entire strip, (2) 507 galaxies with R_ph_ <= 16.4 in right ascension range 8^h^32^m^ <= {alpha} <= 10^h^45^m^, equinox B1950.0, (3) 1251 galaxies with absorption- and K-corrected R_CCDc_ <= 16.2 (where "c" indicates "corrected") covering the right ascension range 8.5^h^ <= {alpha} <= 13.5^h^, equinox B1950.0, and (4) 1255 galaxies with absorption- and K-corrected V_CCDc_ <= 16.7 also covering the right ascension range 8.5^h^ <= {alpha} <= 13.5^h^, equinox B1950.0. All these redshift samples are more than 98% complete to the specified magnitude limit. We derived samples 1 and 2 from scans of the POSS1 red (E) plates calibrated with CCD photometry. We derived samples 3 and 4 from deep V and R CCD images covering the entire region. We include coarse morphological types for all the galaxies in sample 1. The distribution of (V-R)_CCD_ for each type corresponds appropriately with the classification. Key words: cosmology: observations - cosmology: theory - galaxies: distances and redshifts - large-scale structure of universe
