I/328               Catalogue of bright IDS stars               (Lipaeva+, 2014)

Catalogue of bright IDS stars with extensive cross-identifications. Lipaeva N.A., Sementsov V.N., Malkov O. <Baltic Astron., 23, 245-247 (2014)> =2014BaltA..23..245L =2014yCat.1328....0L
ADC_Keywords: Stars, double and multiple ; Cross identifications Keywords: stars: binaries: visual - catalogs Abstract: A new catalogue of bright binary stars is presented. The catalogue includes bright IDS systems and bright spectroscopic binaries. Besides IDS data (coordinates, relative positions, magnitudes and spectral classification) the catalogue contains extensive cross-identification and comments for 27452 systems. The catalogue is complete to magnitudes of 9mag, but contains stars down to about 16mag. File Summary:

Note (3): Multiplicity flag as follows: * = additional pair in the system ? = star is found to be single (13 systems) Note (4): In a case of low precision of the positional angle the following abbreviations are used for the PAlow value: F = following (p.a.∼90, 27 stars) N = north (p.a.∼0, 30 stars) P = preceding (p.a.∼270, 24 stars) S = south (p.a.∼180, 25 stars) NF = north following (p.a.∼45, 54 stars) NP = north preceding (p.a.∼315, 60 stars) SF = south following (p.a.∼135, 42 stars) SP = south preceding (p.a.∼215, 64 stars) Note (5): If the orbital motion over the interval of observations is comparable with the full turn, or orbit is too small to measure the position, the abbreviation "OR" is indicated (576 stars), and the instantaneous angular distance was changed to the averaged value over the orbit, usually calculated using ADS catalogue data If only an upper limit of the angular separation can be determined, it is marked by symbol "<", and OR contents the upper limit of the angular separation. Note (6): If the semi-major axis of the stellar orbit is known (usually from ADS or Worley, 1983, Cat. V/39) Note (7): Notes ad follows: VAR = component shows a variability NEB = nebula for (18 57.5 -00 35) NOV = Novae for (15 55.3 +26 13) Note (8): Detailed specifications that do not fit in the table grid, for example, the angular distances greater than 100 or less than 0.1 arcsec, and the composite spectra or spectra of multiple components are placed in comments. Note (9): Comments to the catalogue entries contain a variety of components identifications, as well as indications to the errors in source catalogues. Commentary to a multiple stellar system is marked by an asterisk (*) at the end of the first comment line. Comment to each subsequent component of the same system also begins with an asterisk. The photometric values of components are given if available. The notation is: V, B-V, U-B if available, spectral classification if available. Example: UBV(A)= max:6.83-0.05-0.40 B7 V+G8 III If not explicitly stated, the photometric values are given according to the publication of J-C Mermilliod, 1994, "Catalogue of Mean UBV Data on Stars", VI, 1387 pp. Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg New York.
Global notes: Note (G1): IDS name is based on 1900 coordinates and can slightly differ from one, printed in the original IDS catalogue.
