Secondary Galaxy Catalogs

CGQ = Cataloged Galaxies and Quasars Observed in the IRAS Survey (Lonsdale et al. [29]): 11,444 IRAS point sources positionally associated with cataloged galaxies and quasars giving their flux densities at 12, 25, 60 and 100µm. See also [188, 276, 282] for detailed identifications of IRAS sources in Virgo, Fornax, Hydra, Coma and the South Galactic Pole.

CNG = A Catalog of 2,810 Nearby Galaxies has been compiled by Kraan-Korteweg, R. [25] which up-dates and supersedes an earlier version [26] entitled ``A Catlogue of Galaxies within 10 Mpc'' which was believed to be complete for galaxies brighter than -18.5 mag, but includes many galaxies which are intrinsically fainter.

ESO-LV = The Surface Photometry Catalogue of the ESO-Uppsala Galaxies [28]: 37 optical parameters for 16,000 galaxies, including positions, types, redshifts, magnitudes, colours, foreground extinction, dimensions, orientations, profile gradients and surrounding galaxy densities.

NBG = Nearby Galaxies Catalog (Tully [46]): 2,367 galaxies with systemic velocities less than 3,000 km/s. Types and group affiliations; magnitudes, velocities and line widths with references and cross-identifications. A companion atlas to accompany the Catalog is found in [47].

PGC = Catalogue of Principal Galaxies (Paturel, G., Fouqué, P, Bottinelli, L., Gouguenheim, L. [37, 208]): positions and cross-identifications for 73,197 galaxies; morphological descriptions, apparent major and minor axes, apparent magnitudes, radial velocities and position angles.

RC1 = Reference Catalogue of Bright Galaxies (de Vaucouleurs [7]): published data for 2,599 well-studied galaxies; catalogue does not claim completeness but contains those galaxies with diameter > 30 arcsec having published data, m(pg) < 16 mag., or with redshift < 15,000 km/s; revised classifications and detailed references to the literature from 1913 to 1963.

RC2 = Second Reference Catalogue of Bright Galaxies (de Vaucouleurs et al. [8]): revised and expanded version of RC1 for 4,364 objects; diameters and axial ratios; magnitudes and colours on the UBV system; continuum and 21-cm radio magnitudes; redshifts and classifications; references to published photographs and references from 1964 to 1975.

RC3 = Third Reference Catalogue of Bright Galaxies (de Vaucouleurs et al. [9]): revised and enlarged version of RC1 and RC2 containing 23,024 objects; reasonably complete for galaxies having apparent diameters greater than 1 arcmin, B-band magnitudes brighter than 15.5 mag and redshifts less than 15,000 km/s; diameters and axial ratios, magnitudes and colours, redshifts and classifications, all on a uniform system; references to 1987; objects ordered by equinox 2000.0 positions. Published in three volumes.

RSA = Revised Shapely-Ames Catalog of Bright Galaxies (Sandage, Tammann [40]): positions, Hubble types based on large-scale reflector plates, magnitudes and velocities for 1246 galaxies; illustrative photographs included.

A General Catalog of HI Observations of Galaxies (Huchtmeier W.K., Richter, O.-G.: [19]) presents 20,000 entries for over 10,000 galaxies, where the HI data are presented as originally published with detailed references.

Catalog of IRAS Observations of Large Optical Galaxies (Rice it et al.: [224]) total flux densities at 12, 25, 60 and 100 µm for 85 galaxies with blue diameters greater than 8 arcmin; infrared brightness profiles and infrared surface brightness contour maps.

Catalogue of HI Data (Paturel et al. [206]) a compilation of 21,186 21cm linewidth measurements, 12,048 HI velocities, 11,161 HI fluxes from 440 references complete to 1988. Weighted mean HI parameters derived from this catalogue are given in [87].

A Bibliography on the Structure of Galaxies (Brosche, Einasto, Rummel [89]): compilation of kinematic and photometric references on nearby galaxies (V < 1,100 km/s); complete to May 1973.

List of Elite Galaxies (Tenjes et al. [265]): a compilation of kinematic, spectroscopic and photometric data (with references) for over 400 well observed and interesting galaxies.

IRAS Bright Galaxy Sample (Soifer et al. [261]): 324 extragalactic objects with IRAS 60 µm flux densities greater than 5.4 Jy, in an area of ~ 14,500 sq. deg, with Galactic latitude > -15° and delta > -30° for alpha = 00-12 hr; delta > -15° for alpha = 12-14 hr; delta > -20° for alpha = 12-24 hr.

An Atlas of 10,632 HII Regions in 125 Galaxies (Hodge, Kennicutt [151]) includes photographs, numbered charts, and tabular off-set positions; see also [149, 150].

Atlas of Velocity Dispersion Profiles and Rotation Curves for Elliptical and Lenticular Galaxies (Busarello, et al. [91] ); see also [105, 281].

Catalogue of Seyfert Galaxies and Related Objects (Kaneko [162]) and Catalogue of Seyfert Galaxies (Lipovetsky et al. [189]) each compile data, cross-identifications and references to the literature for approximately 1,000 known Seyfert galaxies.

Catalogue of Low Surface Brightness Galaxies (Karachentseva, Sharina [169]) positions, sizes, magnitudes, cross-identifications, etc for some 1,500 low surface brightness galaxies.

Palomar-Westerbork Survey of Northern Spiral Galaxies (Wevers et al. [279]) represents an atlas of combined radio and optical (U'JF) observations of 16 bright, near-by northern hemisphere spiral galaxies.

Rotation Curve Catalogues: bibliographical information up to 1981 on rotation curves for 271 galaxies (Baiesi et al. [67]), and for 116 normal S and Ir galaxies (Kyazumov [186]).
