Wegner, Gary; Colless, Matthew; Baggley, Glenn; Davies, R.L; Bertschinger, Edmund; Burstein, David; McMahan, Robert K. Jr; Saglia, R.P


The EFAR project is a study of 736 candidate elliptical galaxies in 84 clusters lying in two regions, toward Hercules-Corona Borealis and Perseus-Pisces-Cetus, at distances cz ~ 6000-15,000 km s^-1^. In this paper (the first of a series), we present an introduction to the EFAR project and describe in detail the selection of the clusters and galaxies in our sample. Fundamental data for the galaxies and clusters are given, including accurate new positions for each galaxy and redshifts for each...[Show more]
