III/190B            WEB Catalog of Radial Velocities     (Duflot+ 1995)

Radial velocities. The Wilson Evans Batten catalogue WEB (Wilson Evans Batten) Catalogue Duflot M., Figon P., Meyssonnier N. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 114, 269 (1995)> =1995A&AS..114..269D
ADC_Keywords: Radial velocities Keywords: radial velocities - catalogues - stars: kinematic Description: We give a common version of the two catalogues of Mean Radial Velocities by Wilson (1953; catalogue III/21) and Evans (1978; catalogue III/47) to which we have added the catalogue of spectroscopic binary systems (Batten et al. 1989; catalogue V/64). For each star, when possible, we give: 1) an acronym to enter SIMBAD (Set of Identifications Measurements and Bibliography for Astronomical Data; see of the CDS (Centre de Donnees Astronomiques de Strasbourg). 2) the number HIC of the HIPPARCOS catalogue (Turon 1992; catalogue I/196). 3) the CCDM number (Catalogue des Composantes des etoiles Doubles et Multiples) by Dommanget & Nys (1994; catalogue I/211). For the cluster stars, a precise study has been done, on the identification numbers. Numerous remarks point out the problems we have had to deal with. REMARKS: => In the paper, and in the file "annex2", the equinox of the coordinates is 1950, whereas 2000 equinox is used for the web catalog; => In the paper, read "Wilson (1953)" instead of "Wilson (1963)" File Summary: File Summary:

Note on m_HD: the following symbols are used: / two successive HD numbers for only one line (see annex2, part 2-I) $ the radial velocity is that of a sub system (see article section 3.4c) Note on n_Vmag: the following symbols are used: * when magnitude is photographic not visual V for variables stars : this symbol exists in Evans catalogue (probably for uncertain value) Note on Sp: column 40 contains, if Wilson luminosity: c: supergiant d: dwarf g: giant s: subgiant t: subdwarf or ":" for HD 12938 for uncertain magnitude Note on u_RV: ":" for doubtful RV "*" from original catalogue of Batten (probably for inaccurate RV) Note on n_RV: "e" for emission radial velocity "G" RV of the gravity center for double or multiple system (see article section 3.4) "g" RV of the gravity center for a sub-system (see article section 3.4) Note on o_RV: number of plates or "N" (in column 53) undetermined but large number of observations or "?" (in column 53) unknown number of observations Note on DM: the first two bytes designate the Durchmusterung BD Bonner Durchmusterung (DE ≥ -22) CD Cordoba (-22> DE >-52) CP Cape (DE ≤ -52) (small letters for CD or CP indicate case where the HD convention is not followed) Note on Names: GC Number in the General Catalogue (B.

The letters mean: A : stars from Batten V/64 without V0 value B : miscellaneous notes C : errors related to star identifications in original or machine-readable catalogues D : stars for which Evans III/47 did not take Wilson's results into account E : Spectroscopic binaries with V0 without signification from objective prism by Gieseking (=1981A&AS...43...33G; =1984A&AS...57...99G) F : Interversion in HD or BD components G : Stars from Wilson III/21 and Evand III/47 removed in the WEB. H : Astrometric binaries I : Systems having a "/" in HD, but where the A component has the largest HD number J : velocities from Heard (1956PDDO....2..105H) not in Evans catalogue III/47 K : simultaneously spectroscopic and visual binaries, where it is difficult to identify which component is the spectroscopic binary. Note on Catal: W = Wilson III/21 E = Evans III/47 B = Batten V/64 (1989, Publ. D.A.O. XVII,1) Note on n_Catal: E (in column 133) if a precedent mean RV is found in Evans catalogue W (in column 134) if a precedent mean RV is found in Wilson catalogue
