J/other/Ap/41.356           FBS 10th list of red stars    (Gigoyan+, 1998)

First Byurakan spectral sky survey. Stars of late spectral types. -11°<δ←7° belt. Gigoyan K.S., Hambaryan V.V., Azzopardi M. <Astrophys., 41, 356-366 (1998)> =1998Ap.....41..356G
ADC_Keywords: Stars, late-type ; Magnitudes ; MK spectral classification Abstract: A 10th list of late-type M and C stars found on plates of the First Byurakan Spectral Sky Survey in the -11°<δ←7° belt within area of about 1070°2 is given. The list contains data on 169 red stars, 117 of which were found for the first time: 8 are new C stars, 3 are C-star candidates, 104 are M stars, 1 is either an M or an S star, and 1 object on the survey plate cannot be classified; of the 117 objects, 47 are unidentified IRAS sources. A statistical analysis of the objects that are and are not identified with IRAS sources shows that the identified stars are, with a high probability, brighter and have relatively more massive envelopes. Two stars were found to have fairly large brightness variability (with an amplitude of at least 6.0mag). Gas-dust shells are assumed to exist around nine of the IRAS sources. The equatorial coordinates, spectral types, and stellar magnitudes, determined on Palomar E maps, are given for the selected objects. File Summary:

History: Prepared via OCR at CDS. * 25-Jul-2002 (Brian Skiff, ): Improved positions were derived from the recent astrometrical catalogues, and the stars were matched against the GSC, IRAS PSC and FSC, MSX, and GCVS v4.1. Every star was searched with a 3' radius in SIMBAD to find additional IDs. Many ROSAT X-ray links were found for the active dwarfs. The latter are all shown in the "notes-a.dat" file, which includes most of the relevant original comments as well. A new few new IRAS names were added thanks to the improved positions. Star FBS 0853-089 is noted as being different from T Hya, but as best I can tell there is no other red star in the immediate field. * 04-Nov-2003: 4 typos corrected in notes-a.dat about 1618-090, 1618-075, 0249-084 and 0411-092.
