   RCS (Red-sequence Cluster Survey)= (RCS1) Write:<<RCS JHHMM+DDMM>>
<<RCS NNNNNNNNNNN>> N: 4924 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.
