Penetrating the zone of avoidance''. IV. An optical survey for hidden galaxies in the region 130°≤l≤180°, -5°≤b≤+5°.

Abstract (from CDS):

As the fourth part in a series of papers on galaxies in the zone of avoidance" (ZOA) of the Milky Way we present a compilation of 1067 galaxies discovered during a systematic search on Palomar Observatory Sky Survey I (POSSI) red-sensitive prints. The region searched comprises 500 square degrees, at 130°≤l≤180°, -5°≤b≤+5°. In addition to galactic and equatorial coordinates, we list maximum and minimum optical diameters derived from both the red- and blue-sensitive prints and made cross checks with the IRAS PSC catalogue. An asymmetric distribution of the galaxies with respect to the galactic equator is found and is compared to the locations of optically visible dust clouds and/or the distribution of IR-emitting dust material. There is a pronounced bridge of galaxies across the galactic plane at l≃160° which will be discussed according to recent results on the extension of the Pisces-Perseus supercluster.
