On the CCD Calibration of Zwicky galaxy magnitudes and The Properties of Nearby Field Galaxies

Abstract:

We present CCD photometry for galaxies around 204 bright (m_Z < 15.5) Zwicky galaxies in the equatorial extension of the APM Galaxy Survey, sampling and area over 400 square degrees, which extends 6 hours in right ascension. We fit a best linear relation between the Zwicky magnitude system, m_Z, and the CCD photometry, B, by doing a likehood analysis that corrects for Malmquist bias. This fit yields a mean scale error in Zwicky of 0.38 mag per magnitude: ie Delta m_Z = (0.62 \pm 0.05) Delt...
