Abstract (from CDS):

The Century Survey strip covers 102 deg2 within the limits 8{fh}5≤α≤16{fh}5, 29°.0≤δ≤30°.0, equinox B1950.0. The strip passes through the Corona Borealis supercluster and the outer region of the Coma cluster. Within the Century Survey region, we have measured 2410 redshifts that constitute four overlapping complete redshift surveys: (1) 1728 galaxies with Kron-Cousins Rph≤16.13 covering the entire strip, (2) 507 galaxies with Rph≤16.4 in right ascension range 8h32m≤α≤10h45m, equinox B1950.0, (3) 1251 galaxies with absorption- and K-corrected RCCDc≤16.2 (where ``c'' indicates ``corrected'') covering the right ascension range 8{fh}5≤α≤13{fh}5, equinox B1950.0, and (4) 1255 galaxies with absorption- and K-corrected VCCDc≤16.7 also covering the right ascension range 8{fh}5≤α≤13{fh}5, equinox B1950.0. All these redshift samples are more than 98% complete to the specified magnitude limit. We derived samples 1 and 2 from scans of the POSS1 red (E) plates calibrated with CCD photometry. We derived samples 3 and 4 from deep V and R CCD images covering the entire region. We include coarse morphological types for all the galaxies in sample 1. The distribution of (V-R)CCD for each type corresponds appropriately with the classification.
