VII/102     Spectrophotometric Atlas of Standard Stellar Spectra (Pickles 1985)

Spectrophotometric Atlas of Standard Stellar Spectra Pickles A.J. <ApJS, 59, 33 (1985)> =1985ApJS...59...33P
ADC_Keywords: Atlases ; Spectrophotometry ; Photometry Description: Continuous spectrophotometry has been obtained for 200 objects at a resolution of 10-17 A over the wavelength region 360-1000nm. Kron-Cousins BVRI colors are computed for the spectra and compared with published photoelectric photometry. The (V-R)_C color index is used to group the individual observations to form standard spectra types by stellar class. The standard groups include a solar abundance sequence of most spectral types and luminosity classes, metal-rich and metal weak G-K giant-branch sequences, and horizontal-branch giants. The standard spectra are presented in FITS files, of which a summary is contained in the "list.dat" file. File Summary:
