III/172     Radial Velocities from Objective Prism Plates (Stock 1992)

Radial Velocities from Objective Prism Plates Stock J. <Rev. Mex. Astron. Astrofis., 24, 45 (1992)> =1992RMxAA..24...45S
ADC_Keywords: Galactic plane ; Galactic pole, south ; Spectral types ; Radial velocities Description: Accurate positions and radial velocities are determined from 32 objective-prism plates for two areas. Each field is observed twice with opposite dispersion, allowing adjustment of coordinates for spectra not at the plate centers. From the adjusted coordinates and plate overlap, positions are determined with average mean errors: 0.0135 s in RA and 0.177 arcsec in Dec for Area I (near the South Galactic Pole); 0.0315 s in RA, 0.144 arcsec in Dec for Area II (near the galactic plane). Observations were taken by J.D. MacConnell and G. Araya with a six degree prism on the Curtis Schmidt telescope at Cerro Tololo. File Summary:
