I/214           NPM1 Cross-Identifications and Appendices   (Klemola+ 1994)

Lick Northern Proper Motion Program: NPM1 Catalog Cross-Identifications and Appendices Hanson R.B., Klemola A.R., Jones B.F. <NSSDC/WDC-A-R&S 94-14> <Bull. American Astron. Soc., 184, #27.07 (1994)> =1994AAS...184.2707H
ADC_Keywords: Cross identifications ; Proper motions Description: The NPM1 Catalog provides absolute proper motions, positions, and photographic photometry, measured in the Lick Northern Proper Motion (NPM) program, for some 149,000 stars in the magnitude range 8<B<18mag, covering the sky outside the Milky Way north of -23° declination. The NPM1 Cross-Identifications file provides some 42,000 cross-identifications between the NPM1 Catalog numbers and star names, stellar type classifications, and publication references. These additional data, extracted from the Lick Input Catalog of Special Stars, facilitate many practical uses of the NPM1 Catalog. Six Appendices to the NPM1 Catalog provide references, footnotes, and other useful information. File Summary:
