We present two catalogues of galaxies in the direction of the rich cluster 85. The first one includes 4232 galaxies located in a region tex2html_wrap_inline522 from the cluster centre. It has been obtained from a list of more than 25000 galaxy candidates detected by scanning a Schmidt photographic plate taken in the tex2html_wrap_inline524 band. Positions are very accurate in this catalogue but magnitudes are not. This led us to perform CCD imaging observations in the V and R bands to calibrate these photographic magnitudes. A second catalogue (805 galaxies) gives a list of galaxies with CCD magnitudes in the V and R bands for a much smaller region in the centre of the cluster. These two catalogues will be combined with a redshift catalogue of 509 galaxies (Durret et al. 1997) to investigate the cluster properties at optical wavelengths (Durret et al., in preparation), as a complement to our previous X-ray studies (Pislar et al. 1997; Lima-Neto et al. 1997).
