J/A+A/381/464       Proper motions and membership in NGC 2548     (Wu+, 2002)

Determination of proper motions and membership of the open star cluster NGC 2548 Wu Z.Y., Tian K.P., Balaguer-Nunez L., Jordi C., Zhao J.L., Guibert J. <Astron. Astrophys. 381, 464 (2002)> =2002A&A...381..464W
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Proper motions Keywords: Galaxy: open clusters and associations: individual: NGC 2548 - astrometry - Galaxy: kinematics and dynamics Description: Absolute proper motions, their corresponding errors and membership probabilities of 501 stars in the open cluster NGC 2548 region are given. 265 stars from Tycho-2 Catalogue (Cat. I/259) are used as the reference frame. Only 8 stars were found in this region from the Hipparcos Catalogue, and their respective cross-identification are given as notes. The material used consists in 10 plates taken at the Zo-Se station of Shanghai Observatory between 1916 and 1998. File Summary:
