The Millennium Galaxy Catalogue: 16 <=BMGC < 24 galaxy counts and the calibration of the local galaxy luminosity function
The Millennium Galaxy Catalogue (MGC) is a 37.5 deg2,medium-deep, B-band imaging survey along the celestial equator, takenwith the Wide Field Camera on the Isaac Newton Telescope. The surveyregion is contained within the regions of both the Two Degree FieldGalaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey EarlyData Release (SDSS-EDR). The survey has a uniform isophotal detectionlimit of 26 mag arcsec-2 and it provides a robust,well-defined catalogue of stars and galaxies in the range 16<=BMGC < 24 mag.Here we describe the survey strategy, the photometric and astrometriccalibration, source detection and analysis, and present the galaxynumber counts that connect the bright and faint galaxy populationswithin a single survey. We argue that these counts represent the stateof the art and use them to constrain the normalizations (φ*) of anumber of recent estimates of the local galaxy luminosity function. Wefind that the 2dFGRS, SDSS Commissioning Data (CD), ESO Slice Project,Century Survey, Durham/UKST, Mt Stromlo/APM, SSRS2 and NOG luminosityfunctions require a revision of their published φ* values by factorsof 1.05 +/- 0.05, 0.76 +/- 0.10, 1.02 +/- 0.22, 1.02 +/- 0.16, 1.16 +/-0.28, 1.75 +/- 0.37, 1.40 +/- 0.26 and 1.01 +/- 0.39, respectively.After renormalizing the galaxy luminosity functions we find a mean localbJ luminosity density of .1
