The survey was carried out with the wide-field grism spectrograph (WFGS) on the University of Hawaii 2.2m telescope on Mauna Kea. X-ray observations made with the European Photon Imaging Camera (EPIC) on board the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton satellite observatory will be discussed in a subsequent paper. Optical (BVRCIC) photometry was obtained for selected fields to supplement similar data from the literature. Spectra covering the 6000-8000Å region at a resolution of R∼3000 (adequate for the determination of Li I λ6708 line strengths) were obtained for 150 Hα and X-ray emission sources with the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph (GMOS). Description: An Hα emission survey of NGC 2264 was conducted between 1990 January and 2003 January using the Wide Field Grism Spectrograph (WFGS) at the f/10 Cassegrain focus of the University of Hawaii (UH) 2.2m telescope on Mauna Kea.

Note (5): Flag on EW(Ha), defined as follows: : = uncertain value; k = Strong emission with weak or no continuum. Note (6): From GMOS spectroscopy. Note (7): Known emission source Hα number, defined as follows: LNNN = LkHA NNN (Herbig, 1954ApJ...119..483H); KNNN = KHA NNN (Ogura, 1984PASJ...36..139O); ENNN = ESO-HA NNN (Reipurth et al., 2004AJ....127.1117R); HNNN = HBC NNN; NNN = IfAHA NNN.
