CfA Redshift Catalog (June 1995 Version)

The ZCAT database contains the CfA Redshift Catalog, which incorporates much of the latest velocity data from the Whipple Observatory and other sources, as well as velocities from earlier compilations such as the "Second Reference Catalog" of de Vaucouleurs, de Vaucouleurs, and Corwin; the "Index of Galaxy Spectra" of Gisler and Friel; and the "Catalog of Radial Velocities of Galaxies" of Palumbo, Tanzella-Nitti, and Vettolani. It includes BT magnitudes, some UGC numbers, and increased "accuracy" in the velocity source information. The data presented here have primarily been assembled for the purpose of studying the large scale structure of the universe, and, as such, are nearly complete in redshift information, but are not necessarily complete in such categories as diameter, magnitude, and cross-references to other catalogues.
