The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: spectra and redshifts

Colless, Matthew; Dalton, Gavin; Maddox, Steve; Sutherland, Will; Jackson, Carole; Peterson, B.A; Price, Ian


The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) is designed to measure redshifts for approximately 250000 galaxies. This paper describes the survey design, the spectroscopic observations, the redshift measurements and the survey data base. The 2dFGRS uses the 2dF multifibre spectrograph on the Anglo-Australian Telescope, which is capable of observing 400 objects simultaneously over a 2° diameter field. The source catalogue for the survey is a revised and extended version of the APM galaxy catalogue,...[Show more]
