Identifying red variables in the Northern Sky Variability Survey. Williams P.R., Wozniak S.J., Vestrand W.T., Gupta V. <Astron. J., 128, 2965-2976 (2004)> =2004AJ....128.2965W

Objects were selected from the Northern Sky Variability Survey (NSVS, Wozniak et al., 2004AJ....127.2436W) covering the entire sky above declination δ=-38° in a single unfiltered photometric band corresponding to a V-band magnitude range of ∼8-15.5mag.

Note (1): The classification code used for the NSVS two- and three-class problems is defined as follows: M = Mira variable SR+L = Semiregular variable and iregular variables C = Carbon stars Note (2): GCVS=General Catalogue of Variable Stars (Kholopov et al., 1998, see Cat. II/250)
