III/230  Magnitudes and spectral types in 5 galactic fields  (Voroshilov+, 1985)

Catalogue of BV magnitudes and spectral classes for 6000 stars Voroshilov V.I., Guseva N.G., Kalandadze N.B., Kolesnik L.N., Kuznetsov V.I., Metreveli M.D., Shapovalov A.N. <Ukrainian Acad. Nauk, Kiev, 1-140 (1985)> =1985CBVMS.C......0V
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, photographic; MK spectral classification Description: This catalog was initially compiled at the Abastumani Observatory, containing photographic BV magnitudes and spectral classes for about 6000 stars up to V(lim)=13.0mag in five circular areas of 18°2 located near the galactic-equator plane; the observations were made with the Abastumani 70cm Maksutov plus 4° and 8° prisms, yielding dispersions of 166 and 666 Å/mm at H-γ. The compilation did not provide the star positions, and the magnitudes were found to have a rms scatter around 0.15mag, i.e. around 0.2mag for the B-V color index. The charts were compared with the GSC1.1 (Cat. I/220) by B. Skiff (Lowell Observatory) thus providing accurate coordinates; B. Skiff also examined the cross-identifications with several other catalogues, and added the notes. File Summary:
