On galactic absorption

We show that the stellar photored magnitude, m₁₀, of the 10th by brightness galaxy in an Abell cluster is not a good indicator of the cluster distance. We find that the values of m₁₀ for clusters in the southern Galactic hemisphereare systematically fainter by about 0 ͫ. 17 than those in the norther...
