J/AJ/135/2177       High proper motion stars in the DSS. IV.     (Lepine, 2008)

New high proper motion stars from the Digitized Sky Survey. IV. Completion of the southern survey and 170 additional stars with µ>0.45"/yr. Lepine S. <Astron. J., 135, 2177-2193 (2008)> =2008AJ....135.2177L
ADC_Keywords: Surveys ; Stars, nearby ; Proper motions Keywords: astrometry - binaries: visual - solar neighborhood - stars: kinematics - surveys - white dwarfs Abstract: Completion of the SUPERBLINK proper motion survey in the southern celestial hemisphere has turned up 170 new stars with proper motion 0.45"/yr<mu<2.0"/yr. This fourth and final installment completes the all-sky, data mining of the Digitized Sky Surveys for stars with large proper motions. The areas investigated in this final installment comprise 11600deg-2 in the declination (DE) range -30°<DE<0° and in low Galactic latitude areas south of DE=-30° which had not been covered in earlier data releases. Astrometric and photometric data are provided for the 170 new stars, along with finder charts. Most of the new discoveries are found in densely populated fields along the Milky Way, toward the Galactic bulge/center. The list of new discoveries includes four stars with proper motion mu>1.0"/yr. The total list of high proper motion stars recovered by SUPERBLINK in the southern sky now includes 2228 stars with proper motions 0.45"/yr<mu<2.0"/yr. Description: HPM stars were identified from data mining of the DSSs using the SUPERBLINK software. The method has been described in much detail in Papers I-III of this series (Lepine et al. 2002, Cat. J/AJ/124/1190, 2003AJ....126..921L; Lepine 2005, Cat J/AJ/130/1247) and the accuracy and completeness of the technique, for the northern sky survey, have been documented in Lepine & Shara (2005AJ....129.1483L, Cat. I/298). File Summary:
