J/A+A/397/575   Liverpool-Edinburgh high proper motion survey   (Pokorny+, 2003)

The Liverpool-Edinburgh high proper motion survey Pokorny R.S, Jones H.R.A., Hambly N.C. <Astron. Astrophys. 397, 575 (2003)> =2003A&A...397..575P
ADC_Keywords: Stars, late-type ; Proper motions ; Photometry, photographic Keywords: Galaxy, kinematics and dynamics - Galaxy: halo - solar neighbourhood - stars: late-type - subdwarfs - white dwarfs Abstract: We present a catalogue of 6206 stars which have proper motions exceeding 0.18 arcsec/yr with an R-band faint magnitude limit of 19.5mag. This catalogue has been produced using SuperCOSMOS digitized R-Band ESO and UK Schmidt Plates in 131 Schmidt fields covering more than 3,000 square degrees (>7.5% of the whole sky) at the South Galactic Cap. The survey is >90% complete within the nominal limits of the Luyten Two Tenths Catalogue of mR<18.5mag and 0.2<µ<2.5arcsec/yr, and is >80% complete for mR<19.5mag and µ<2.5arcsec/yr. Description: The catalogue comprises 6605 objects in the southern hemisphere, 399 of which are extra detections of stars from the plate overlap regions and are already listed in the catalogue.

Note (1): Flag denotes if a star has been detected in different fields where they overlap. 0: star is only detected once and for the best detection of a star detected more than once. 1: for any extra detections. Note (2): SERC number of the field in which the star was identified
