Spiral structure in the outer galactic disk. I. The third galactic quadrant. Vazquez R.A., May J., Carraro G., Bronfman L., Moitinho A., Baume G. <Astrophys. J., 672, 930-939 (2008)> =2008ApJ...672..930V

The optical observations consist of a large sample of young open clusters and associations, whereas the radio observations consist of a survey of nearby and distant clouds observed in CO. Both the optical and radio samples are the largest ones thus far presented in the literature. We use this unique material to analyze the behavior of interstellar extinction and to trace the detailed structure of the third Galactic quadrant (TGQ). Description: This sample extension comes from an observing run conducted in Cerro Tololo with the 1.0m telescope on nights 2005 November 28-December 4. File Summary:
