Bidelman-Parsons Spectroscopic and Bibliographical Catalog Parsons S.B., Buta N.S., Bidelman W.P. <CDS Bull. No. 18, p. 86 (1980)> =1980BICDS..18...86P
ADC_Keywords: Combined data ; Spectral types ; Bibliography Description: The Bidelman-Parsons Spectroscopic and Bibliographical Catalog (BPSB; Parsons, Buta, and Bidelman 1980a, b) contains data compiled from the astronomical literature by W. P. Bidelman. These data include diverse catalogs and lists, especially from pre-1950 journals (minor as well as major), and from pre-1962 observatory publications. From more recent years, the data on any object frequently are limited to one item with a reference; for example, a spectral type. No data published after 1973 are included. Over 200 publications are represented. The BPSB has information on 40,312 objects. The catalog contains most of the same information on MK spectral types as the Catalogue of Stellar Spectra Classified in the Morgan-Keenan System (Jaschek, Conde, and de Sierra 1964) and its updates, but it also includes such items as spectral types without a luminosity class (certainly better than nothing); spectroscopic absolute magnitudes; notes on multiplicity; notes on high proper motion or radial velocity (with the values, if probably variable, or if greater than 60 km/s); unpublished remarks and spectral types from several sources, including Bidelman and Henize; and Bidelman's preliminary identifications of many sources in the Two-Micron Sky Survey (Neugebauer and Leighton 1969). Some of the longer lists included in the catalog are those of OB stars from the Tonantzintla-Tacubaya and Heidelberg-Koenigstuhl surveys (Iriarte and Chavira 1957; Chavira 1958; Klare and Szeidl 1966); that of OB stars with emission from the Case-Hamburg surveys (Hardorp et al. 1959; Stock, Nassau, and Stephenson 1960; Hardorp, Theile, and Voigt 1964; Nassau and Stephenson 1963; Hardorp, Theile, and Voigt 1965; Nassau, Stephenson, and MacConnell 1965; Stephenson and Sanduleak 1971); and stars from the General Catalogue of Variable Stars (Kukarkin et al. 1969); and the Catalogue of Suspected Variable Stars (Kukarkin et al. 1951, 1965). Although the catalog is mainly of stellar data, it includes many galactic nebulae of various kinds. File Summary:

Note on SeqNum: The sequence number of the record within its group (that is, the group pertaining to a given object). Note on NumRec: The total number of records in the group. Note on RAh, RAm, DE-, DEd, DEm: Equinox 1900 coordinates. Either (1) precessed and corrected for proper motion; or (2) from the HD, the GCVS, or another catalog with 1900 coordinates. The BPSB was originally in increasing order by 1900 right ascension, and within each 0.1-minute segment, it is in decreasing (north-to-south) order by declination. Positions given to 0.01 minute of right ascension were ordered as if rounded, with 0.05 minute rounded down. However, the correction of improper values (60 for minutes or seconds and 24 for hours) destroyed this strict order. If two objects have the same coordinates--for example, a planetary nebula and its central star--O.01 minute has been added to one of the right ascensions, in order to make the 1900 coordinates unique for each object. Although the BPSB conventions are somewhat like those of the HD and YBS, they do not preserve the HD and YBS ordering. Note also that the effect of these conventions cannot be reproduced by an ascending character sort on the tag. Note on RAh1950, RAm1950, DE-1950, DEd1950, DEm1950: Equinox 1950 coordinates were precessed from 1900, if so indicated by the precession flag; otherwise, taken directly from the source list. For most stars north of declination 88.5 degrees, these coordinates are from the AGK3. Note on Preces: Precession flag. Colon (:) if 1950 coordinates precessed; otherwise, blank. Note on Sp: HD spectral type, or a similar one from one of the references (see data2.dat) Note on Vmag: In the V or mv or mpv system. Two decimal places are given only when it is clearly a photoelectric V value. Note on n_Vmag: : approximate value A or B component of double star C combined value for multiple system This symbol is in the other mag type field, if there is nothing in the other magnitude field. Otherwise, it is in the visual magnitude field itself, in which case the field must be read with an A-type Fortran format. Note on n_Omag: A description of the other magnitude, as follows: B blue in UBV system I near-infrared P mpg (photographic) R red in UBVRI system U ultraviolet in UBV system See also under Vmag above. Note on VarMag: Minimum magnitude of variable. The magnitude at minimum light of a variable star. If there is another magnitude, this one will usually be of the same type; otherwise, it is usually visual. This field may include a code letter (see above), or a colon (:) meaning upper limit; in these cases, the field must be read with an A-type format. Note on HDnum: Henry Draper or Henry Draper Extension catalog number. Note on HDcode: If the object has two HD numbers (e.g., a double star), there is a plus (+) in this byte, and the larger of the numbers is used elsewhere in the catalog. This field may also contain an A or B to differentiate components, or a colon (:) for uncertainty in the identification. Note on DMzsign, DMzone, DMcat, DMnum, DMid: Identifier of the object in the Bonner Durchmusterung (BD), the Cordoba Durchmusterung (CD), or the Cape Photographic Durchmusterung (CPD). This field might also contain some stray Astrographic Catalogue (AC) identifiers, which are similar to those in the Durchmusterungen. This field may also be blank. This applies to stars that have an HD number, but do not have a DM number. This identifier has not been supplied for many HR stars. In the zone around -55, CPD and CD numbers are quite similar in value and could be incorrectly designated. zone sign Plus (+) or minus (-). zone Absolute value of Durchmusterung declination zone. cat code C for CD, P for CPD, or blank for BD. See also under DM above. number The number of the star within its zone. id code May be A or B for BD supplemental stars; P = preceding, or S = succeeding for nearby stars, according to the usage of the AGK2/3; N = north, S = south, P = preceding, F = following for nearby stars, according to another common convention. Caveat emptor. Note on Oname: Non-HD, non-DM names of the object, separated by commas. Only the one or two most significant of these names will be given for most objects, especially for those with HD numbers. For unfamiliar types of names, consult the references for the object; and in this document, "Appendix A. Catalog Abbreviations" and "Appendix B.

Note on SeqNum, NumRec: See note for data1.dat Note on text: This field contains data and references on the object identified in the first record of the group (see data1.dat). The items are separated by slashes (/). An item may be continued from one record to another. The break between records will occur only adjacent to a blank. If the last non-blank data in a given record is something besides a slash, the item probably continues into the next record. (Or else, the given record is the last one for its object.) Although in a so-called free format, these data do follow a pattern. A typical item can be represented as follows: DATA *REFERENCE (OTHER DATA) The asterisk and parentheses are used literally as shown. Not every element is present in every item. For example, in many cases, only a reference is given. Indeed, sometimes a datum is given with no reference; in which case, one of the other references for the same record probably applies. (Such anomalies are usually the result of uncertainties in interpreting Bidelman's card file, which was accumulated over many years with the aid of student assistants.) Another such case is that of the colon (:), normally used in astronomy to mean approximate; Bidelman's assistants sometimes used this mark to separate a datum from its reference. Some spurious colons have probably made it into the BPSB. Sometimes, there can be two references for the same paper, as for example, if the paper appears both in a journal and in an observatory publication. Here, the second references will be given in parentheses (that is, as "other data"). The reference itself is as follows: journal or other publication, for published data; astronomer's name, for unpublished data; volume or number; page; year (sometimes). In this context, N. is the abbreviation for number. Several references in the same journal volume may be condensed into one reference having a series of page numbers separated by pluses or by commas. See "Appendix C. Publication Abbreviations and Astronomers' Names", and "Appendix A. Catalog Abbreviations" for help in deciphering references. See "Appendix D. Abbreviations Used in the Free-Format Data (data2.dat)" for help in interpreting the data.

Note on Name: Each index record has one name. For the source of the names, see HD number, DM, and other names under "The First Data Record data1.dat for an Object". Because every name given in the data file is included in the index file, there may be several index records for an object. However, any names that might be given in the free-format data are not included. Only the fields just cited were used. Some objects do not have names. The corresponding index records have the string **NONAME** instead. (These objects can presumably be identified by their coordinates.) The index file is sorted on this field in ascending EBCDIC collating sequence. (The **NONAME** records are at the beginning, in order of 1950 right ascension.) Note on RAh, RAm, DE-, DEd, DEm: These coordinates are exactly the same as those in bytes 43-57 of the data file. This field was added because interfacing with other catalogs or databases might require 1950 coordinates in many cases. Note, however, that these coordinates are not guaranteed to be unique to each object, as are the 1900 coordinates, in the data file. Note on FdataRec: The sequential number of the first record of the group in data1.dat that pertains question. This number applies only to the complete data file sorted in the original order. Note on LdataRec: The sequential number of the last record of the group in data1.dat that pertains to the object name in question. See the remarks under FdataRec.
Remarks and modifications: The catalog was originally maintained on three-by-five-inch index cards. In 1973, NASA Experiment S-019 purchased a photocopy, which resides at the University of Texas in Austin. There, the data were keypunched and written to magnetic tape. In February, 1980, the catalog was received from the University of Texas by the Astronomical Data Center (ADC), NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center. Several major changes in the format of the catalog (none in the contents) were made by one of the present authors (Hill) under ADC auspices. The resulting catalog is described in this document. The two most important features of the original catalog were its condensed format, and its division into multiple files. The data were in a single stream that continued freely over record and block boundaries. The beginning and end of the data for each object were indicated with special character strings, as were the beginning and end of each particular data item. The data were divided into 96 files, each one covering 15 minutes of right ascension. This process was accomplished in three steps, each done by means of a Fortran program: 1. A file of variable-length records was generated with one object per record, but with the data otherwise in the original stream format. 2. The format was converted to the present one, with several fixed-length records per object. The tag at the beginning of each record was generated. 3. The index file was generated. Appendix A.
