2007ApJS..170...33P Markarian Galaxies. I. The Optical Database and Atlas Artashes Petrosian, Brian McLean, Ronald J. Allen, and John W. MacKenty Abstract. A database for the entire Markarian catalog is presented that combines extensive new measurements of their optical parameters with a literature and database search. The measurements were made using images extracted from the STScI Digitized Sky Survey (DSS) of F_pg_(red) and J_pg_(blue) band photographic sky survey plates obtained by the Palomar and UK Schmidt telescopes. We provide accurate coordinates, morphological type, spectral and activity classes, red and blue apparent magnitudes, apparent diameters, axial ratios, and position angles, as well as number counts of neighboring objects in a circle of radius 50 kpc. Special attention was paid to the individual descriptions of the galaxies in the original Markarian lists, which clarified many cases of misidentifications of the objects, particularly among interacting systems, larger galaxies with knots of star formation, possible stars, and cases of stars projected on galaxies. The total number of individual Markarian objects in the database is now 1544. We also include redshifts that are now available for 1524 objects with UV-excess radiation, as well as galactic color excess E(B-V) values and their 2MASS or DENIS infrared magnitudes. The database also includes extensive notes that summarize information about the membership of Markarian galaxies in different systems of galaxies and about new and revised activity classes and redshifts. An atlas of several interesting subclasses of Markarian galaxies is also presented.

I. The Optical Database and Atlas" (ApJS, 170, 33 [2007]) Petrosian, Artashes; McLean, Brian; Allen, Ronald J.; MacKenty, John W. Abstract. It has come to our attention that an error was introduced when creating the online Table 1 for the original paper published in 2007 May. It appears that when converting our table to ASCII those coordinates with declinations of negative 0^degree^ were converted incorrectly and lost the negative sign. In addition, we have corrected the measured parameters for Mrk 257 which was misidentified with an adjacent galaxy.
