Description

This catalogue contains a list of individual galaxies, designed to be complete to apparent blue magnitude 15.5. In order to achieve the desired degree of completeness, it includes all objects down to an estimated magnitude 15.7, thus allowing for a possible error of 0.2 magnitudes in the estimates.

The positions are given to the nearest arcmin in declination and to the nearest tenth of a minute of time in right ascension.
