|Arcsecond Positions of UGC Galaxies|
We present accurate B1950 and J2000 positions for all confirmed galaxiesin the Uppsala General Catalog (UGC). The positions were measuredvisually from Digitized Sky Survey images with rms uncertaintiesσ<=[(1.2")2+(θ/100)2]1/2,where θ is the major-axis diameter. We compared each galaxymeasured with the original UGC description to ensure high reliability.The full position list is available in the electronic version only.
|Total magnitude, radius, colour indices, colour gradients and photometric type of galaxies|
We present a catalogue of aperture photometry of galaxies, in UBVRI,assembled from three different origins: (i) an update of the catalogueof Buta et al. (1995) (ii) published photometric profiles and (iii)aperture photometry performed on CCD images. We explored different setsof growth curves to fit these data: (i) The Sersic law, (ii) The net ofgrowth curves used for the preparation of the RC3 and (iii) A linearinterpolation between the de Vaucouleurs (r(1/4) ) and exponential laws.Finally we adopted the latter solution. Fitting these growth curves, wederive (1) the total magnitude, (2) the effective radius, (3) the colourindices and (4) gradients and (5) the photometric type of 5169 galaxies.The photometric type is defined to statistically match the revisedmorphologic type and parametrizes the shape of the growth curve. It iscoded from -9, for very concentrated galaxies, to +10, for diffusegalaxies. Based in part on observations collected at the Haute-ProvenceObservatory.
|An image database. II. Catalogue between δ=-30deg and δ=70deg.|
A preliminary list of 68.040 galaxies was built from extraction of35.841 digitized images of the Palomar Sky Survey (Paper I). For eachgalaxy, the basic parameters are obtained: coordinates, diameter, axisratio, total magnitude, position angle. On this preliminary list, weapply severe selection rules to get a catalog of 28.000 galaxies, wellidentified and well documented. For each parameter, a comparison is madewith standard measurements. The accuracy of the raw photometricparameters is quite good despite of the simplicity of the method.Without any local correction, the standard error on the total magnitudeis about 0.5 magnitude up to a total magnitude of B_T_=17. Significantsecondary effects are detected concerning the magnitudes: distance toplate center effect and air-mass effect.
|The distribution of the spiral galaxies in the direction of the Coma/A 1367 supercluster|
The three-dimensional distribution of spiral galaxies is analyzed for a1080 sq deg region surrounding the Coma cluster, A 1367 and Zw 74-23(NGC 5416 cluster). H I observations of spiral galaxies having angulardiameters less than 2 arcmin, with the exception of six NGC objects andone IC object, are used, detecting 87 galaxies with 67 redshiftsreported for the first time. A population of faint isolated galaxies asmuch as 30 deg from Coma or A 1367 is found having radial velocitiesnear 7000 km/s, and a group between Coma and A 1367 is found containingno galaxies with m(p) less than 15.0. South of A 1367 three groups arefound located 12 deg from the core with radial velocities near 7000 km/sand a projected diameter less than 2 Mpc. South of 20 deg declination atleast four clusters and isolated galaxies are found which could be partof the southern extension of the Coma-A 1367 supercluster. Assuming allthe detected isolated spirals belong to the Coma-A 1367 supercluster,the angular extent of the supercluster is almost a radian in the planeof the sky.
