Description

This catalogue is a result of a systematic search made on the plates of the ESO(B) survey (also termed `Quick Blue Survey') which covers 606 fields distributed at 5 deg centres from declination -90 to -20 deg.

A total of 18438 objects are listed; of these, about 60% for the first time. Magnitudes and radial velocities are also given for 2102 galaxies. Further details, bibliography, notes to individual objects and data on the plates used in the survey may be found in a separate file.
