Details on Acronym: RCS RCS (Red-sequence Cluster Survey)= (RCS1)
Object:Cluster of G (SIMBAD class: ClG = Cluster of Galaxies)
Note:The RCS is a survey designated primarily to search for galaxy clusters to redshifts as high as z=1.4. The survey is first described in 2001, ASP Conf. 232, p.126, by Gladders + Yee. 2005ApJS..158..161H: photometric redshift catalog.
