Abstract

Data are presented for 693 galaxies identified in a large new survey for low surface brightness galaxies in the nearby universe (z <~ 0.1). The survey covers 786 square degrees centered on the equator, and it extends significantly the surface brightness range of galaxy surveys in which there are a substantial number of galaxies with redshifts. The data are derived from the Automated Plate Measuring machine scans of survey plates from the UK Schmidt Telescope and from follow-up observations at radio and optical wavelengths. Accurate positions, total B magnitudes, surface brightness parameters, and angular sizes are tabulated for each galaxy. Radial velocities, optical luminosities, and neutral hydrogen masses are listed for a subset of the sample. Finding charts are also presented for those objects having a large enough angular size that the scans from survey plates provide some morphological information. The selection function and the luminosity function that can be derived from the survey are discussed in two companion papers.
