Description (Introduction of Catalog):
    This compendium is a companion to the Nearby Galaxies Atlas (ref. 29;
    hereafter NBG Atlas). Data has been accumulated on 2367 galaxies with
    systemic velocities less than 3000 kilometers/second. Any galaxy was
    admitted to the catalog if it had a known velocity in 1978 that
    satisfied the specified limit of 3000 kilometers/second, or if it was
    subsequently observed to have a suitable velocity in surveys of the
    entire sky by the author and collaborators (ref. 6, 11, 22).

    There are many sources of velocities, so this catalog could
    potentially be quite heterogeneous. However, two sources dominate.
    One of these is the magnitude-limited Shapley-Ames sample, which
    assures the inclusion of all galaxies brighter than 12th magnitude in
    the blue passband (ref. 25). There are 1053 Shapley-Ames galaxies
    within the velocity limit. The other source was already mentioned: the
    all-sky survey in the neutral hydrogen line by the author and
    collaborators. This survey was undertaken after a complete
    reinspection of photographic atlases of the sky. This survey was
    insensitive to gas-deficient systems and has severe incompletion
    problems at velocities beyond 2000 kilometers/second (discussed in
    ref. 11). However, the virtue of our survey is homogeneous coverage
    across the unobscured part of the sky. The neutral hydrogen survey
    provides 1515 velocities to the catalog. There is some overlap
    between the two principal sources. It is this cumulative sample that
    is mapped in the NBG Atlas.

    There are three parts to the catalog. The first and by far the largest
    section (catalog) provides information about each of the 2367
    galaxies. One element of that information is a group affiliation, and
    in a second section (groups) there is a reordered listing that
    clarifies the composition of each group. The final, very short section
    (clusters) identifies the rich clusters of galaxies that delineate the
    supercluster complexes mapped in the last two plates of the NBG Atlas.

    The text of the atlas is written at a level that can be appreciated by
    a wide audience. The material in this catalog and the following
    description are of a more technical nature. This catalog is intended
    for an audience of professional and motivated amateur astronomers.

Note (12): All HI observations by the author and collaborators were single-beam measurements with a beam that is frequently smaller than the size of the source. The corrections are discussed in Ref.11 Note (13): density of galaxies brighter than -16mag in the vicinity of the entry. The local density was determined on a 3D-grid at 0.5Mpc spacing. See the details in the printed catalogue Note (14): galaxies may be affiliated with other galaxies in groups, associations, or clouds. The affiliations are described by a code in the form AB±CD+EF : a galaxy is located in cloud AB (see Note (1) in table "groups"), group -CD or first level association +CD, and second level association +EF. Galaxies are ordered by group in table "groups" Note (15): The alternative names are that date back before 1976 can be found in BGC (ref.7) and RC2 (ref.9). More recent sources are designated Arak = Arakelian (ref. 3) CVndw = Lo and Sargent (ref.18) Kar = Karachentseva (ref.15) M81dw = Lo and Sargent (ref.18) RMB = Rubin et al. (ref.24) SAGDIG = Cesarsky et al. (ref. 5) SCLDIG = Laustsen et al. (ref.17) Scl = Rubin et al. (ref.23) Turn = Turner (ref.32) UGCA = Nilson (ref.21) UKS = Longmore et al. (ref.19) At the very end of this column there may be a notation that indicates if the galaxy has a Seyfert(S) or LINER(L) active nucleus; the number that follows specifies whether the type is 1, or 2, or an intermediate case. Note (16): is sometimes larger than 1 due to the different methods for the computations of MH and MT
