We present two catalogues of galaxies in the direction of the rich cluster ABCD 85. The first one includes 4232 galaxies located in a region 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 BJ 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).
Key words: galaxies: clusters: individual: ABCG 85; galaxies: photometry
Based on plates scanned with the MAMA microdensitometer at CAI, Paris and on observations collected at the European Southern Observatory, La Silla, Chile.
