A list of new nearby dwarf galaxy candidates

To increase completeness of the distance limited sample of nearby galaxies from the the Kraan-Korteweg & Tammann (1979) catalogue we undertook a search for small companions of larger known galaxies which have corrected radial velocities within 500 km/s. Based primarely on the POSS-II and ESO/SERC films we found 260 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates with angular diameters  arcmin...

HI observations of nearby galaxies - I. The first list of the Karachentsev catalog

We present HI observations of the galaxies in the first list of the Karachentsev catalog of previously unknown nearby dwarf galaxies (Karachentseva & Karachentsev 1998). This survey covers all known nearby galaxy groups within the Local Volume (i.e. within 10 Mpc) and their environment, that is about 25% of the total sky. A total of 257 galaxies have been observed with a...

CCD photometry and distances of six resolved irregular galaxies in Canes Venatici

The results of detailed imaging of six nearby irregular galaxies with radial velocities  km/s are presented. Except for one all the galaxies have been resolved into stars for the first time. Based on photometry of the brightest blue stars we derived the following distances to the galaxies: 3.6 Mpc for NGC 4163, 3.5 Mpc for NGC 4190, 8.6 Mpc for UGC 7298, 4.8 Mpc for UGC 7577, 3.7...

A list of nearby dwarf galaxies towards the Local Void in Hercules-Aquila

Based on film copies of the POSS-II we inspected a wide area of □° in the direction of the nearest cosmic void: {RA = 18h 38m, , 1500 km s-1}. As a result we present a list of 78 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates which have angular diameters and a mean surface brightness , mag/□″. Of them 22 are in the direction of the Local Void region. To measure their redshifts, a HI survey of...

CCD imaging of twenty nearby isolated irregular galaxies

We present B, V and I CCD stellar photometry for a sample of 20 field irregular dwarf galaxies. Their corrected radial velocity is 500 km s-1. Most of them have been resolved into stars for the first time. Based on photometry of their brightest blue stars we have derived the following distances: 5.9 Mpc (UGC 685), 5.4 Mpc (UGC 1281), 7.2 Mpc (UGC 3303), 7.0 Mpc (UGC 3476), 7.3...

A supplementary list of southern nearby dwarf galaxy candidates

To improve the census of the Local Volume galaxies, we carried out a systematic search for nearby dwarf galaxies in a declination range of based on the ESO/SERC film copies. As a result, we present a list of 81 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates of low surface brightness which have angular diameters . Half of the objects have been found for the first time. This sample may be...

6-m telescope observations of three dwarf spheroidal galaxies with very low surface brightness

Dwarf spheroidal galaxies (dSphs) are mostly investigated in the Local Group. DSphs are difficult targets for observations because of their small size and very low surface brightness. Here we measure spectroscopic and photometric parameters of three candidates for isolated dSphs, KKH 65 = BTS23, KK 180, and KK 227, outside the Local Group. The galaxies are found to be of low...

Intense look at Virgo Southern Extension

We collected data on radial velocities and distances of galaxies to elucidate structure and kinematics of the filament attached to the Virgo cluster from south. In the region ${\rm RA} = [12{.\!\!^{ {\mathrm {h}}}}5{--}13{.\!\!^{ {\mathrm {h}}}}5]$, Dec. = [−20°,0°] there are 171 galaxies with radial velocities VLG < 2000 km s−1, and 98 of them have distance estimates. This...

Hα survey of nearby dwarf galaxies

We present the Hα imaging data and flux measurements for 30 dwarf galaxies in the Local Volume. The Hα fluxes are used to derive the galaxy star-formation rate (SFR). The sample of observed galaxies is characterized by the following parameters: a median distance of 7.5 Mpc, median blue absolute magnitude of −14.8 mag and median SFR of −2.0 dex. Two dSph members of the Local Group...

Cosmic Flows: Green Bank Telescope and Parkes H i observations

The neutral hydrogen properties of 1822 galaxies are being studied with the Green Bank 100-m and the Parkes 64-m telescopes as part of the ‘Cosmic Flows’ programme. Observed parameters include systemic velocities, profile linewidths and integrated fluxes. The linewidth information can be combined with the optical and infrared photometry to obtain distances. The 1822 H i...

Dark energy domination in the Virgocentric flow

Context. The standard ΛCDM cosmological model implies that all celestial bodies are embedded in a perfectly uniform dark energy background, represented by Einstein's cosmological constant, and experience its repulsive antigravity action.Aims. Can dark energy have strong dynamical effects on small cosmic scales as well as globally? Continuing our efforts to clarify this question...

The Hubble flow around the Local Group

We use updated data on distances and velocities of galaxies in the proximity of the Local Group (LG) in order to establish properties of the local Hubble flow. For 30 neighbouring galaxies with distances 0.7 < DLG < 3.0 Mpc, the local flow is characterized by the Hubble parameter Hloc= (78 ± 2) km s−1 Mpc−1, the mean-square peculiar velocity σv= 25 km s−1, corrected for errors of...

FIGGS: Faint Irregular Galaxies GMRT Survey – overview, observations and first results

The Faint Irregular Galaxies GMRT Survey (FIGGS) is a Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) based H i imaging survey of a systematically selected sample of extremely faint nearby dwarf irregular galaxies. The primary goal of FIGGS is to provide a comprehensive and statistically robust characterization of the neutral interstellar medium properties of faint, gas-rich dwarf...

Baryonic Tully–Fisher relation for extremely low mass Galaxies

We study Tully–Fisher (TF) relations for a sample that combines extremely faint (MB < −14) galaxies along with bright (i.e. ∼L*) galaxies. Accurate (∼10 per cent) distances, I-band photometry and B−V colours are known for the majority of the galaxies in our sample. The faint galaxies are drawn from the Faint Irregular Galaxy GMRT survey (FIGGS), and we have H i rotation...
