Transitional YSOs: candidates from flat-spectrum IRAS sources Magnier E.A., Volp A.W., Laan K., Van den Ancker M.E., Waters L.B.F.M. <Astron. Astrophys. 352, 228 (1999)> =1999A&A...352..228M

We have identified a sample of 125 objects as candidate transitional YSOs on the basis of IRAS colors and the optical appearance on POSS plates. We have obtained optical and near-IR imaging of 82 objects accessible from the Northern Hemisphere and optical images of 62 sources accessible from the South. We also created deconvolved 60µm IRAS images of all sources. We have classified the objects on the basis of their morphology in the optical and near-IR images. We find that the majority of our objects are associated with star-forming regions, confirming our expectation that the bulk of these objects are YSOs. Of the 125 objects, 28 have a variety of characteristics very similar to other transitional YSOs, while another 22 show some of these characteristics. Furthermore we have found seven objects to be good candidates for members of the Herbig Ae/Be stellar group, of which three are newly identified as such. File Summary:

Note (1): The category number takes the following values: 1: A likely transitional YSO: A single moderately-bright, very-red stellar object with extensive associated reflection nebulosity. (28 objects) 2: A possible transitional YSO: a moderately red stellar object with weak nebulosity or a significantly red object with no nebulosity. (22 objects) 3: A YSO group: Several very red objects, usually with extended nebulosity. No single object stands out. (21 objects) 4: Bright star. (7 objects) 5: A cluster of stars: usually a red cluster with no single very red star. (18 objects) 6: A galaxy. (11 objects) 7: nothing: no object stands out, and no object can be associated with any of the other classes. (18 objects)
