Abstract: Compact groups of galaxies are an extreme class of object, ideal for the study of galaxy interactions and their effects. In this paper we present a new algorithm, devised to select compact groups from digitized catalogues of galaxies and especially suited to reach fainter magnitudes. We present also the results obtained from the redshift survey of the bright subsample of such groups.
