A Faint Galaxy Survey from Cosmos Measures on Deep UKST Plates

  • H.T. MacGillivray (a1) and R.J. Dodd (a2)

Abstract

Deep photographs taken with the UK 1.2m Schmidt Telescope are being scanned with the COSMOS automatic plate-measuring machine in order to carry out a survey of galaxies over large areas of sky down to faint limits (B ~ 21.5). Several fields have been examined, and the data are being used to investigate the properties and largescale projected distribution of galaxies.
