Catalogue of radial velocities of Nearby Stars Tokovinin A.A. <in Catalogue of radial velocity measurements, ed. A.A.Tokovinin. Moscow Univ. Press, 4 (1990)> <Pis'ma v Astronom. Zh. 16, 52 (1990)> =1990PAZh...16...52T <Astron. Astrophys. 256, 121 (1992)> =1992A&A...256..121T
ADC_Keywords: Stars, nearby ; Radial velocities ; Rotational velocities Description: The catalogue contains radial 1365 individual measurements of radial velocities of 200 dwarf stars within 25 parsecs from the Sun, mostly of spectral types K and M. They were measured in 1986-1985 with correlation spectrometer. The typical accuracy is 0.3-0.8km/s. The average parameters of correlation dip (equivalent width and FWHM) are also given and may be used to estimate axial rotation and metallicity. File Summary:
