This paper presents the calibration of BVRIH-0.5 Tully-Fisher relations based on Cepheid distances to 21 galaxies within 25 Mpc and 23 clusters within 10,000 km s-1. These relations have been applied to several distant cluster surveys in order to derive a value for the Hubble constant, H0, mainly concentrating on an I-band all-sky survey by Giovanelli and collaborators, consisting of total I magnitudes and 50% line width data for ∼550 galaxies in 16 clusters. For comparison, we also derive the...[Show more]
