Lindegren's teaching site
This page contains a selection of links to web pages, documents and
data that I have used in various courses, both at undergraduate and
(post)graduate level. It is by no means a complete record of the teaching
that I have done over the years, but more a collection of resources
that I have found useful.

Miscellaneous
The following files are used in various exercises:
Data for 281 galaxies
in the Coma cluster (from the sample by Kent & Gunn, AJ 87, 945, 1982).
Format: one line per galaxy with 6 columns (RA, Dec, x, y, mag, vr),
units: deg, deg, arcmin, arcmin, mag, km/s. (x,y) are projected
coordinates on the sky, with origin at the centre of the cluster.
