J/A+A/14/164        UBV sequences in Cen                     (Mcgruder+, 1971)

Three UBV sequence in Centaurus. Mcgruder C.H., Schnur G. <Astron. Astrophys., 14, 164-166 (1971)> =1971A&A....14..164M
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, UBV ; Photometry, sequences Keywords: photoelectric photometry ; UBV magnitudes ; Centaurus Description: Photoelectric UBV observations were made with the ESO 1m telescope and the ESO photometer on 6 nights between 1970-04-01 and 1970-05-03. The observations were centered around (B1950)13:24-62:23 The positions and identifications of the 3 sequences were computed by B. Skiff (Lowell Obs.) in September 2010, from a comparison of the published charts with the computer screen-plots of UCAC2. File Summary:
