|UBVRI photometry of the Durham-AAT redshift survey|
Using the PDS microdensitometer at the Royal Greenwich Observatory, wehave acquired U, B, V, R and I surface photometry from UK Schmidtphotographic plates for all the galaxies with measured redshifts in theDurham-AAT redshift survey. By comparison with CCD photometry we showthat such precision photographic photometry of galaxies off IIIaemulsions is capable of an accuracy as good as a few hundredths of amagnitude. We discuss the color-related properties of these galaxies,and derive luminosity functions in each waveband. We show that, whendivided by color, the faint-end slope of the luminosity function of thebluer galaxies is significantly steeper than that for the redder ones.
|A complete galaxy redshift sample. III - Methods and catalogue|
Redshifts and photometry are presented for 329 field galaxies selectedin five high-latitude fields to limiting isophotal B1 magnitudes ofabout 17. The essential spectroscopy was obtained at theAnglo-Australian Telescope. It is demonstrated that the photometricprecision is better than 0.10 mag and that the radial velocity errorsare mostly below 45 km/s. Some aspects of the galaxy distribution andspectral-line statistics are briefly discussed.
|Redshifts for 228 southern galaxies|
In this paper, new redshifts are presented for 228 galaxies locatedsouth of declination -30 deg. The observations were made with aphoton-counting Reticon detector on the Observatorio Nacional (ON)60-in. telescope. The detector is identical to the one used at MountHopkins for the CfA Redshift Survey, and the redshifts were derivedusing the same data-analysis system. A preliminary comparison withpublished 21-cm redshifts indicates that the velocities have azero-point offset of about -4 km/s, with a typical uncertainty of 40km/s. The observations reported here are the initial results of theON-CfA Redshift Survey currently being undertaken in the southernhemisphere.
