Optical spectroscopy of galaxies in the direction of the Virgo cluster.

Abstract (from CDS):

Optical spectroscopy of 76 galaxies, 48 of which are projected in the direction of the Virgo cluster and 28 onto the Coma-A1367 supercluster, is reported. Adding these new measurements to those found in the literature, the redshift completeness in the Virgo region becomes 92% at BT≤16.0 and 68% at BT≤18.0. The one of CGCG galaxies in the direction of the Coma-A1367 supercluster becomes 98%. The Virgo cluster membership estimates obtained on morphological grounds by Binggeli et al. (1985AJ.....90.1681B) are confirmed in all cases. However, several ``possible members" classified as BCD (if in the cluster) are found instead to be giant emission-line galaxies in the background of the Virgo cluster
