J/AJ/103/1205       Stellar Content of LH 9 and 10 in the LMC     (Parker+ 1992)

The Stellar Content of LH 9 and 10 (N 11) in the LMC: A Case for Sequential Star Formation Parker J.WM., Garmany C.D., Massey P., Walborn N.R. <Astron. J. 103, 1205 (1992)> =1992AJ....103.1205P (SIMBAD/NED Reference)
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds; Associations, stellar; Photometry, CCD; Photometry, UBV; Spectroscopy; Spectral types Description: We present CCD photometry and spectroscopy for stars in Lucke-Hodge 9 and 10, two adjacent OB association in the northwest corner of the LMC. Our catalog contains UBV photometry (complete to ∼18mag in all three filters) for 795 stars and BV-only photometry (complete to ∼19mag in both filters) for an additional 434 stars. File Summary:

Note (1): Stars with numbers <3000 are in LH 9, and numbers >3000 are in LH 10. Star numbers 1001 through 1522 are from Table 3. Star numbers 2001 through 2345 are from Table 4. Star numbers 3001 through 3273 are from Table 5. Star numbers 4001 through 4089 are from Table 6. Note (2): Since the CCD frames for these fields (LH 9 and 10) are not contiguous, the X and Y coordinates refer to different coordinate systems for LH 9 and LH10; for orientation of the coordinate systems see the CCD finder charts in the article. Pixel sizes (in X and Y columns) are approximately 0.49 arcsec/pixel. Note (3): Stars without U photometry are flagged by U-B = 99.000 and U-B err = 9.000.

Note (1): Stars numbers 1001 through 1522 are located in LH 9 (Table 10), and 3001 through 3273 in LH 10 (Table 11). In the journal article, Tables 10 and 11 listed the Bluest (Q←0.7) and Brightest (V<16) Stars in LH 9 and 10, and Table 12 listed other stars with known spectral types. The table here contains ALL stars with UBV photometry (e.g., all stars that are listed in Tables 3 and 5), and includes their bolometric magnitudes and effective temperatures which were not listed in the original tables. Note (2): Since these fields are not contiguous, the X,Y coordinates refer to different coordinate systems: they are from the CCD finder charts in the article. Pixel sizes are approximately 0.49 arcsec/pixel. Note (3): One colon ":" indicates an uncertainty of one spectral subtype or luminosity class, and two colons "::" indicate a larger uncertainty. Note (4): Comments in square brackets, [], are indicated by the following codes (note that these codes are somewhat different than those that appear in the original paper): [a]: strong Balmer lines [b]: possible composite / blend; spectrum contaminated by nearby star (in some cases the number of the other star is given in parentheses) [c]: cosmic ray hits / bad pixels [d]: weak Balmer lines [e]: strong nebular emission in the Balmer lines [g]: weak N lines [p]: Star 3264 is a ZAMS star with extremely strong nebular emission lines and is located in the compact HII knot N 11A (see text) [z]: ZAMS O star
