Redshifts: See the bright-galaxy compendia, plus these specific collections: Huchra, Davis, Latham and Tonry 1983, ApJSuppl 52, 89. First part of the CfA survey, 2401 Zwicky and UGC galaxies brighter than M Zw =14.5. Gisler and Friel, Index of Galaxy Spectra , 1979 Pachart, Tucson. 2004 galaxies, surveys previously published data. Palumbo, Tanzella-Nitti, and Vettolani, Catalog of Radial Velocities of Galaxies , 1983, Gordon and Breach. 8250 galaxies from the literature. Many sources from the NSSDC (and NED, if you can tell which consensus value is listed) are useful for current redshift-survey results, which have passed the 1.5-million-galaxy mark, rising so fast that electronic retrieval is the only way to keep up. The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) alone yielded 10 6 galaxy redshifts in the northern galactic cap, and the AAT 2dF survey delivered more than 220,000 in two southern fields. Active Galactic Nuclei: Handbook of Quasistellar and BL Lacertae Objects , E.R. Craine 1977, Pachart, Tucson. Finding charts, fluxes, positions, references; much less necessary now than it was before the Web. A Revised and Updated Catalog of Quasi-Stellar Objects , Hewitt and Burbidge 1993, APJSuppl 87, 451. Basic data and citations for 7225 QSOs and 90 BL Lac objects. Optical Catalog of Radio Galaxies , Burbidge and Crowne 1979, APJSuppl 40, 583. Similar data for radio galaxies. Catalogue of Quasars and Active Nuclei, Veron-Cetty and Veron, 12th edition, Astron. Astrophys. (in press?), 2006. Also (and most usefully) available electronically . Basic positional, flux, and type information for 85221 QSOs, 21737 active nuclei, and 1122 BL Lac objects. Some of the low-level AGN classifications at least in the early editions were fantasy - if it was ever called so by anyone, it will appear here. Did you know that the Andromeda Galaxy is a Seyfert 2? QSOs are now being identified at a huge rate, especially from followup of the FIRST radio survey and ROSAT all-sky survey in soft X-rays, plus new optical multicolor work such as the Hamburg effort. Earlier catalogs do not appear to have been as complete as we thought.
