J/A+A/566/A58       Radial velocities in M3, M13, and M92    (Kamann+, 2014)

The central dynamics of M3, M13, and M92: stringent limits on the masses of intermediate-mass black holes. Kamann S., Wisotzki L., Roth M.M., Gerssen J., Husser T.-O., Sandin C., Weilbacher P. <Astron. Astrophys. 566, A58 (2014)> =2014A&A...566A..58K

The provided catalogues include several hundreds of stars in each cluster that cover a wide range of distances to the cluster centres. Besides the measured radial velocities, the catalogues contain measurement uncertainties, identifiers, world coordinates and variability information for each star. The velocities for stars near the centres of the clusters were obtained using PMAS integral field spectroscopy (IFS). Note that in order to facilitate future variability studies, for each star the individual velocity measurements are provided instead of a single combined velocity. The PMAS data are complemented with velocities reported in various literature studies for stars at larger distances to the centres. File Summary:

Note (1): The column gives the identifier of each star in the photometry of Anderson et al. (2008AJ....135.2055A). Stars with identifiers greater than 900000 were added from archival WFPC2 data. Note (2): Simbad identifiers are only provided for stars with radial velocities available in the literature. Note (3): If pvar=y, the star is included in the catalogue of variable stars by Clement et al. (2001AJ....122.2587C)

Note (1): If pvar=y, the star is included in the catalogue of variable stars by Clement et al. (2001AJ....122.2587C) Note (2): The references from which the radial velocities were taken as follows: GG79 = Gunn & Griffin (1979AJ.....84..752G) L+87 = Lupton et al. (1987AJ.....93.1114L) P+88 = Pryor et al. (1988AJ.....96..123P) S+99 = Soderberg et al. (1999PASP..111.1233S) P+00 = Pilachowski et al. (2000AJ....119.2895P) D+07 = Drukier et al. (2007AJ....133.1041D) M+09 = Meszaros et al. (2009AJ....137.4282M) Note (3): Where available, we added the identifier of the star in the photometry of Anderson et al. (2008AJ....135.2055A) Note (4): One of the following flags may indicate that the provided velocity is biased as follows: a = The position of the sources in an HST image suggests significant contamination from one or more bright neighbors. b = The source has no obvious counterpart in HST image data. Note (5): For tabled6, Cl* NGC 6341 DCL NNNN objects are not yet in Simbad, (see catalog J/AJ/133/1041).
