Re: (IAAC) Edge-on???



Martin,
You may also want to check out:
Flat Galaxy Catalogue
    Karachentsev I.D., Karachentseva V.E., Parnovsky S.L.
   <Astron. Nachr. 314, 97 (1993)>
Its a catalog of galaxies with major-to-minor axis ratios of greater than 7,
for galaxies with major axis diameters greater than 40 arcseconds.  It
contains 4455 objects form both the northern and southern skies.
Good Hunting,
/Bob
