J/AJ/134/778        BVRI photometry of candidate subdwarfs   (Marshall, 2007)

Mapping the local galactic halo. I. Optical photometry of cool subdwarf candidates. Marshall J.L. <Astron. J., 134, 778-786 (2007)> =2007AJ....134..778M
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, UBVRI ; Stars, subdwarf Keywords: Galaxy: halo - solar neighborhood - stars: late-type - subdwarfs Abstract: Optical (BVRI) photometric measurements of a sample of 564 candidate cool subdwarfs in the nearby halo are presented. The stars generally span the color range 0.4<(B-V)<1.8; hence, the sample is composed of early F- through early M-type stars on the subdwarf sequence. The sample is selected from the revised NLTT catalog of Gould and Salim and Salim and Gould via a reduced proper motion diagram. The photometry is precise and accurate; in particular, for stars with 9<V<13.5 the photometry is accurate to 0.013, 0.015, 0.012, and 0.013mag in V, B-V, V-R, and V-I, respectively. For stars with 13.5<V<16 the photometry is accurate to 0.022, 0.018, 0.013, and 0.018mag in the same bands. Description: Photometric observations were obtained at the Cerro-Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO) on the 0.9m telescope during 2003 and on the 1.0m telescope in 2004, and at the MDM Observatory 1.3m telescope during 2003 and 2004.

Possible variability (1)
Note (1): Note on NLTT as follows: 1 = Star may be variable or have large photometric errors, due to large standard deviation (>0.08mag) between multiple measurements 2 = Star may be variable or have large photometric errors, due to large discrepancy with Hipparcos photometry
