Does anyone have a list of these? 

Found lots of research papers but none with position and magnitudes.

 

Thanks!

I attached P.M. Ogle's list of Most Luminous BCGs in the thread "Distant Galaxies and Clusters",  it gives names and r band mags for the Brightest Cluster galaxies (within the SDSS footprint) in NED, to z~.3.  Positions for most of them are part of their 2MASX designation- and they can all be found, along with available magnitudes data, in HyperLeda.

 

Also, the Vizier and Heasarc archives contain many parameter-searchable catalogs of BCGs, - like this one,

Hope that helps!

Yes. Maybe.  Are we talking about the same types of galaxies?

If this format is any easier, here's the entire sample of 4390 LRGs from Barber's 2007 paper in a NED table, sorted by redshift.  With one exception (probably due to an error), the redshifts fall in the range 0.15 ≤ z ≤ 0.40 or a co-moving radial distance of 2 billion to 5 billion light years.
