I/150 Proper Motions for High Luminosity Stars (Valitova+ 1990)
The Catalogue of Proper Motions for High Luminosity Stars Valitova A.M., Karimova D.K., and Pavlovskaya E.D. <Tr. Gos. Astron. Inst. Sternberg (1990)>
ADC_Keywords: Proper motions ; Stars, luminous Description: Meridian circle observations of high luminosity stars were used to supplement previous positions to derive improved proper motions. The proper motions and positions are derived for J2000.0 and for the epoch of observation but the systematic correction: FK5-FK4 and the correction to FK5 for each star were ignored. V magnitudes and MK spectral types are taken from published catalogs. Introduction: The stars selected for observation were taken from lists provided by Parenago and by Blaauw supplemented by lists compiled at the Sternberg Institute. The proper motions were taken from papers by Karimova, Pavlovskaya, and Toropova (1974) and Karimova and Pavlovskaya (1981) supplemented by new positional catalogs published after these papers were written. For GC stars, the number of catalogs used to refine the GC motions is given; for other stars, the complete number of catalogs used is listed. The method described in the GC (Boss, 1937) is employed with weights of additional catalogs taken from Karimova and Pavlovskaya (1971), from the published internal errors, or from the table from Karimova and Pavlovskaya (1971). To convert from B1950.0 to J2000.0, the standard matrix method from the Astronomical Almanac for 1989 was used. File Summary:

Note on HD: If star is absent in HD catalogue, then its BD number is given. Note on RAh, DE-: Right Ascension and Declination for J2000.0 and for epoch of J2000.0 and for epoch of observations in FK5 system. Note on catRA, catDE: Number of catalogues that were used to define more precisely proper motions in Right Ascension or Declination.
