Historical Notes: * October 1989: first archived at CDS * 29-Mar-1995: version "A" - reformatted tables at CDS, corrected over 100 misalignments in tables. - table3: some stars used more than one line; all details concerning one star have been grouped into single records missing positions have been added, with the exception of the five last records - apx2: identifications neither GC nor HD were removed in HD and GC columns * 22-Sep-1997: reformatted table4 at CDS, and replaced blanks (standing for continuation lines) by their values. * 03-May-2002: Thanks to a remark by Marion Schmitz, the reference (A&AS 89, 469) was corrected.
