These are incomplete, but lie in that part of the South Galactic Cap between 50deg and 90deg from the Galactic plane and south of about -12.3° of declination. This part of the survey comprises 79 UK Schmidt Telescope fields covering about 2150deg2, in which we find 536 blue objects - including hot subdwarfs (∼33 per cent), white dwarfs (∼30 per cent), binaries (∼12 per cent), cataclysmic variables (∼1.5 per cent) and some 'star-like' galaxies (∼12 per cent). A further 254 stars observed in the survey, mainly low-metallicity F- and G-type stars, are also listed. Low-dispersion spectroscopic classification is given for all the hot objects and UBV photometry for most of them. Either spectroscopy or photometry is listed for the cooler types. Description: The spectroscopic and photometric results from Zones 4-6 of the EC Survey are given in Tables 3 and 4; Table 3 lists the hot objects and Table 4 the cooler objects. File Summary:
