The Catalogue of 5969 Southern Reference Stars and 726 Bright Stars. Konin V.V., Khrutskaya E.V. <Publ. Pulkovo (2), 85, 4-148 (1983)> =1983TrPul..85....4K
ADC_Keywords: Positional data Description: The catalogue contains 5969 southern reference stars (SRS) and 726 bright stars (BS). The observations were carried out in the declination zone from 0° to -20° with the Repsold meridian circle in Nikolaev Astronomical Observatory (Ukraine) in 1964-1966. The RMS errors of right ascensions are 18ms and 25ms for the SRS and the BS correspondingly. The RMS errors of declinations are 480mas and 470mas for the SRS and the BS correspondingly. The catalogue is in good agreement with a system of the FK4. File Summary:
