J/A+A/435/363       Southern Infrared Proper Motion Survey   (Deacon+, 2005)

Southern Infrared Proper Motion Survey. I. Discovery of New High Proper Motion Stars From First Full Hemisphere Scan. Deacon N.R., Hambly N.C., Cooke J.A. <Astron. Astrophys. 435, 363 (2005)> =2005A&A...435..363D
ADC_Keywords: Stars, dwarfs ; Positional data ; Photometry, infrared ; Proper motions Keywords: astrometry - stars: low mass, brown dwarfs Abstract: We present the first results from the Southern Infrared Proper Motion Survey. Using 2 Micron All Sky Survey (II/246) data along with that of the SuperCOSMOS sky survey (Hambly et al., 2001MNRAS.326.1279H) we have been able to produce the first widefield infrared proper motion survey. Having targeted the survey to identify nearby M, L and T dwarfs we have discovered 70 such new objects with proper motions greater than 0.5"/yr with 10 of these having proper motions in excess of 1"/yr. Description: Astrometry (proper motions and positions) and infrared photometry are presented for the 70 new objects found with the Southern Infrared Proper Motion Survey. Data for the 74 previously known objects are also included. File Summary:
