We recover the joint and individual space density and surface-brightness distribution(s) of galaxies from the Millennium Galaxy Catalogue (MGC). The MGC is a local survey spanning 30.9 deg2 and probing approximately 1-2 mag arcsec-2 deeper than either the Two-Degree Field Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) or the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The MGC contains 10095 galaxies to BMGC < 20 mag with 96 per cent spectroscopic completeness. For each galaxy we derive individual K-corrections and...[Show more]
