III/237A       Revised Byurakan-IRAS stars (BIS) catalog    (Mickaelian+, 2006)

Revised and updated catalogue of Byurakan-IRAS stars. Mickaelian A.M., Gigoyan K.S. <Astron. Astrophys. 455, 765 (2006)> =2006A&A...455..765M
ADC_Keywords: Stars, late-type ; Stars, variable ; Infrared sources ; Photometry Keywords: catalogs - surveys - stars: carbon - infrared: stars Description: Five lists of late-type stars were published in Astrophysics in 1997-2001, found in the First Byurakan Survey low-dispersion spectroscopic plates as optical identifications of unidentified IRAS sources. These identifications were carried out in the region with DE>+61 and |b|>15 with a surface of 1504deg2. As a result, the catalog of the Byurakan-IRAS Stars (BIS) was compiled. Its preliminary version was available at CDS since 2003, Cat. III/237. We have revised and updated the BIS catalog with the new data from recently published optical and infrared catalogs to give access to all available data and make possible further comparative studies of the properties of these objects. Cross-correlations of the BIS catalogue with the MAPS, USNO-B1.0 and 2MASS are made, updated SIMBAD data for the BIS objects are added, and accurate DSS1 and DSS2 positions and revised photometry are provided. The objects were checked for proper motion and variability as well. A refined classification from the Digitized First Byurakan Survey (DFBS) low-dispersion spectra was carried out. The revised and updated catalogue of 276 Byurakan-IRAS stars (BIS) is presented. The BIS catalogue can be used for a study of a complete sample of IRAS selected stars and for investigation of individual objects. File Summary:
