I am working on a project that requires some amount of number crunching. I require some basic data about the galaxy M82 and our own Milky Way (particularly luminosities). My advisor is a nut and he blurts out numbers from his head that seem to be right. All the more, I would like to be sure. So is there any place where I can find reliable data? (Google isn't helping much here and I also tried http://nedwww.ipac.caltech.edu/). Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I am working on gas outflows from galaxies. I am focusing on galaxies which have luminosities beyond their Eddington limit. Thus to compare some calculated results, it would be useful to have the bolometric luminosities of M82 and Milky Way. Hope this clarifies.
