Catalogue of stars in the Northern Milky Way having H-α in emission Kohoutek L., Wehmeyer R. <Abhandlungen Hamburger Sternwarte 11, Teil 1 + 2 (1997)> =1997AAHam..11....1K =1999A&AS..134..255K
ADC_Keywords: Stars, emission ; Milky Way ; Cross identifications Keywords: catalogues - galaxy: general - stars: emission-line Copyright: 1997 by Hamburger Sternwarte (ISSN 0374-1583) Description: The catalogue contains 4174 stars in the Northern Milky Way, in the range 32°<l<214°, -10°<b<+10°, having the H line in emission. The HBH list (main list, Schmidt camera Hamburg-Bergedorf, red plates taken in the years 1964-70) contains 1979 objects partly identical with those in other lists of H emission-line stars given in the literature up till 1994. Non-stellar objects (e.g. HII regions, planetary nebulae) have not been included in this catalogue except for those objects containing central stars which have the H line in emission, and also for some doubtful cases.

Note (1): The number if made from the page header (1 to 70) and a running number on the page (1 to 60). Note (2): colour system given in the literature: (blank) = photoelectric in the V system, B = photoelectric in the B system, v = visual or photovisual, p = photographic, r = red or photored, m = spectral region not known, e = estimated on our Schmidt-camera plates (A10) according to the classification of the spectra of HBH stars (see Section 2) Note (3): "V" following the magnitude means variable star; the given brightness corresponds to that of the maximum. We confirmed the variability of many stars and found several new variable stars. Note (4): The 6-digit number represents the Declination in degrees, followed by the Right Ascension in hours and minutes, of the center; for instance, 600000 means +60°, 00h00m POSS plate. Note (5): S (at the end, but not part of the designation) indicates an object having a suspected Hα emission line or perhaps a non-stellar object. There are two reasons for a designation as ``suspected'': a) the contrast between the Hα emission line and the continuum in the neighbourhood is small, b) the object may not be a stellar one: e.g. the object is a compact HII region, a knot of the large HII region or a planetary nebula Note (6): Classification of the spectrum of HBH stars on the Schmidt camera long-exposed (30 min) red plates. * Hα emission line is (first character): 1 = very faint, 2 = faint, 3 = moderate, 4 = strong, 5 = overexposed; * continuum is (second character): "-" = invisible or very faint, A = faint, B = moderate, C = strong, D = overexposed, * "-- " is found when no classification of the spectrum in the above system possible, mainly because H emission line visible on short-exposed (<30 min) plates only, or because of variability; Note (7): Existence of the finding chart in Part 2: 1 = one chart, 2 = two charts. See the range of RA given on Plates.
