J/AJ/115/708   Radial Velocities in the Field of M15     (Drukier+ 1998)

The Global Kinematics of the Globular Clutser M15 Drukier G. A., Slavin S. D., Cohn H. N., Lugger P. M., Berrington R. C., Murphy B. W., Seitzer P. O. <Astron. J., 115, 708 (1998)> =1998AJ....115..708D
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular; Radial velocities Description: These tables give the mean radial velocities for 591 stars in the vicinity of the globular cluster M15 (NGC 7078). 230 of these are members of the cluster, the remaining 361 are most likely non-members, although the membership, or otherwise, of the faintest stars with velocities near that of the cluster was impossible to determine. The radial velocities were measured using the Hydra multi-object spectrograph on the WIYN telescope. For cluster members, the median uncertainty is 0.3 km/s. File Summary:

Nomenclature Notes: Stars with names starting with K are from Kustner (1921VeUSB..15....1K) Those with AC are from Auriere & Cordoni (1981A&AS...46..347A). The others with single alphabetical prefixes are from Sandage (1970ApJ...162..841S). Those with Geb are from Gebhardt (1997AJ....113.1026G). The numerical identifications are our own.

Note (1): Probability that velocities of stars with multiple observations are consistent with no variability. This is blank for stars with only a single observation. Note (2): b: Star remains variable if jitter of 0.8 km/s is included. j: Star is not variable if jitter of 0.8 km/s is included. v: Variable star fainter than jitter limit.
