A low-dispersion objective-prism survey for low-redshift emission-line galaxies (ELGs) is being carried out by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid with the Schmidt telescope at the German-Spanish Observatory of Calar Alto (Almeria, Spain). A 4° full-aperture prism, which provides a dispersion of 1950 Å mm^-1, and IIIa-F emulsion combination has been used to search for ELGs selected by the presence of H_α emission in their spectra. A compilation of descriptions and positions, along with finding charts, is presented for 103 emission-line objects. This is the second list, which contains objects located ina region of the sky covering 201.4 deg^2 in seven fields near α = 15^h and δ = 25°.

It is our great pleasure to express thanks for the friendly assistance and observing support received from the Calar Alto Observatory staff especially from Kurt Birkle. A merged copy of the KUG catalog (Vols. 1-17) was kindly provided by Nagako Miyauichi-Isobe in computer-­readable format. Thanks to Jessica Rosenberg for sending us a preprint with the data for galaxies from List 1 and 2 of the Case survey. We also express our thanks to our colleagues at the Departamento de Astrofísica for their encouraging support and many fruitful discussions. We wish to thank the anonymous referee for useful comments that improved this paper. The finding charts were copied from The Digitized Sky Survey. The images are based on photographic data obtained using the Oschin Schmidt telescope on Palomar Mountain. The Palomar Observatory Sky Survey was funded by the National Geographic Society. The Oschin Schmidt telescope is operated by the California Institute of Astronomy and the Palomar Observatory. The Digitized Sky Survey was produced at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScl) under US Govemment grant NAG W-2166. This research has made use of the NASA/IPAC Extra­galactic Database (NED), which is operated by the Jet Pro­pulsion Laboratory, Caltech, under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. This work was supported in part by the Spanish Programa Sectorial de Promoción General del Conocimiento under grant PB93-456.
