Report on discovery of new Seyfert galaxies


We report our discovery of new active galaxies in a small sample of 23 sources with 2.16 m telescope at Beijing Astronomical Observatory. After wavelength and flux calibration, they are classified by their degree of nuclear activities: one Seyfert 1, three Seyfert 2s, six Seyfert 3s, Seven HII galaxies and one possible Seyfert 3.
