I/10   General Catalogue of Stellar Trigonometric Parallaxes (Jenkins 1952-1963)

General Catalogue of Stellar Trigonometric Parallaxes Jenkins L.F. <Yale University Observatory (1952,1963)>
ADC_Keywords: Parallaxes, spectroscopic ; Proper motions Abstract: This catalog was keypunched from the General catalogue of trigonometric stellar parallaxes compiled at the Yake University Observatory by Louise F. Jenkins. It includes the left-hand pages of the 1952 edition and the 1963 supplement. File Summary:

Note (1): Numbers with a non-zero fraction like 16.1 were assigned to stars added in the 1963 supplement; the numbers ending with '.0' are stars from the 1952 edition. Note (2): The 'S' indicates data from the 1963 Supplement edition. Numeric values were assigned to components of multiple systems. Note (3): the asterisk (*) indicates variable stars; 'P' stands for photographic (blue), and V for visual.
