III/151     UBV K Stars South Galactic Pole (Kuijken+ 1989)

Catalogue of K Stars Towards the South Galactic Pole Kuijken K., Gilmore G. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 239, 605, (1989)> =1989MNRAS.239..605K
ADC_Keywords: Galactic pole, south ; Stars, K-type Description: B and V photographic photometry is collected for approximately 2000 stars near the south galactic pole with 0.8<B-V<1.20; v<19.0, and B<20.06. Velocities with respect to the local standard of rest are provided for approximately 500 K dwarfs and K giants. table8.dat contains photometry in 11.5 square degrees towards the South Galactic Pole, derived from UK Schmidt data, and table9.dat contains photometric data over 0.72 square degrees, derived from 4 B and 3 V plates from Las Campanas Observatory. table10.dat, table11.dat and table12.dat contain velocities for dwarf stars.
