Troisieme Catalogue Bibliographique de Vitesses Radiales Stellaires Barbier-Brossat M., Petit M., Figon P. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 108, 603 (1994)> =1994A&AS..108..603B
ADC_Keywords: Radial velocities Keywords: catalogs - techniques: radial velocities - stars: kinematics Abstract: We publish a Bibliographic Catalogue of Stellar Radial Velocities including about 44000 entries for Galactic and Magellanic Cloud stars for the years 1971-1990. The two preceding issues published (1989, A&AS, 80, 67 and 1990, A&AS 85, 885) are mixed with the new data covering the years 1986-1990. File Summary:

Note (1): Uppercase letters are used for visual double stars, lowercase letters for spectroscopic double stars. In the second case, the letter 'a' has been replaced by the letter 'i' . The symbol '/' indicates that the measure concerns 2 stars with consecutive HD numbers or that the radial velocity is relative to the measure of the 2 components of the same star. Note (2): Letters W, E and B are related to the "Catalogue General de Synthese" realised from the catalogues of Wilson, Evans and Batten (catalog III/190) Note (3): Abbreviations used: CEPH = Cepheid. The mean velocity is then provided. DBL, TRI, QUAD, MUL = double, triple, quadruple, multiple star respectively DE = eclipsing binary DS, DS1, DS2 = spectroscopic binary, with 1 or 2 line systems EM = velocity calculated from emission lines ORB = orbit; the star systemic velocity is provided (unexplained 'E' for Cyg X-1) RRLY = RR Lyrae star. The RR lyrae star gravity center is provided STND = IAU standard star VAR = variable radial velocity, according to the author. Note (4): Dispersion used for the radial velocity determination. If the published velocity is the mean of several velocities obtained with very different dispersions, there is no value of the dispersion. Otherwise, we mention the lowest dispersion used preceded by the symbol <. COR: velocities are measured with a correlation spectrophotometer Note (5): List of abbreviations used for the Journals: AA = Acta Astronomica AAP = Astronomy and Astrophysics AAPS = Astronomy and Astrophysics Supplement Series AAOB = Abastumani Astrophysical Observatory Bulletin AFA = Arkiv fur Astrophysik AJ = Astronomical Journal AN = Astronomische Nachrichten AP = Astrophysics (URSS) APJ = Astrophysical Journal APJS = Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series ASS = Astrophysics and Space Science AT = Annals of the Tokyo Astronomical Observatory BAAA = Boletin de la Asociacion Argentina de Astronomia BAAS = Bulletin of the American Astronomical Society BAIC = Bulletin of the Astronomical Institutes of Czechoslovakia BOTT = Boletin de Los Observatorios Tonantzintla y Tacubaya CAO = Bulletin de l'Observatoire de Crimee CRAS = Comptes Rendus de l'Academie des Sciences, Paris DAO = Publications of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory HA = Highlights os Astronomy IAUS = International Astronomical Union Symposium IBVS = Information Bulletin on Variable Stars JAA = Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy (Inde) JO = Journal des Observateurs MAG = Mittelungen Astronomische Gesellschaft MAKL = Mededelingen van Het Astronomich Institut van de Katholieke Universiteit Leuven MEM = Memoirs of the Royal Astronomical Society MES = The Messenger (ESO) MN = Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society MNAS = Monthly Notices of the Astronomical Society of Sotuh Africa MSAI = Memorie della Societa Astronomica Italiana OBS = The Observatory PASJ = Publications of the Astronomical Society of Japan PASA = Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia PASP = Publications of the Astronomical Society of Pacific PCAO = Publication Crimean Astrophysical Observatory PDDO = Publications of the David Dunlap Observatory POAS = Publications de l'Observatoire Astronomique de Strasbourg POCC = Observatorio Astronomico Nacional, Cerro Calan, Publicaciones POGB = Publications de l'Observatoire de Geneve, Serie B RASC = Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada RASV = Ricerche Astronomiche Specola Vaticana RGOA = Royal Greenwich Observatory Annals RMAA = Revista Mexicana de Astronomia y Astrofisica ROB = Royal Observatory Bulletin SA = Soviet Astronomy SAL = Soviet Astronomy - Letters SAOC = South African Astronomical Observatory Circulars VA = Vistas in Astronomy Note (6): Remarks: * Ma 260 in AAP 17, 253-1972. We deleted the BD identification given by the author because it doesn't correspond to the star coordinates * LTT 664 = CD-44 334 instead of CD-44 344 in AJ 84, 1553-1979 * Fl 770 in POAS 2, 1-1972. The published coordinates don't correspond to those of star CP-74 106. We deleted this identification. * HD 11154 = HR 530 instead of HD 11155 in APJS 62, 147 * HD 22484 = BD-0 572 instead of BD+0 572 in AAPS 71, 253 * vB 188 instead of vB 178 in AJ 88, 844-1983 from published coordinates * HD 36486 in APJ 214, 759-1977. The systemic velocity +118.3 published seems wrong compared with other publications. This velocity might be +18.3 * Gl 234A instead of 243A in APJS 314, 272-1987 * NGC 2287 c4 = HD 49105 in AAPS 62, 301-1985. The coordinates and the spectral type published in the paper don't correspond to those of HD. We deleted this identification. * HD 86612 instead of HD 86162 in AAPS 63, 87-1986 * CC Com in PASP 89, 684-1977. The coordinates are different from those of the "Catalogue d'Etoiles Variables" by Kukarkin. * HD 112211 instead of 12211 in AJ 89, 1897-1984 * HD 119191 instead of 19191 in AJ 89, 1897-1984 * CD-29 10863 instead of CD-20 10863 in AJ 89, 1897-1984 * HD 129981 instead of HD 129881 in MN 159, 67-1972 * HD 151985 instead of 151895 in APJS 64, 487-1982 * Case 437 in AJ 81, 364-176. We adopted the coordinates from Case catalogue which differ slightly from the published ones. * CD-23 13997 instead of CP-23 13997 in MN 158, 85-1972 * CD-23 13998 instead of CP-23 13998 in MN 158, 85-1972 * CD-35 12911 in POCC 2, 40-1970. The author coordinates differ from those indicated in SIMBAD, which we have adopted. * APJS 73, 843-1990. There is some confusion between the corresponding numbers. cya 51=CCS 2866=nb 201; cya 50=CCS 2862=nb 202; cya 77=CCS 2873; cya 76=CCS 2874 * BD+15 4915 instead of BD+15 4914 in PASP 97, 1086-1985
General remarks: * MN 230, 273-1988 = DAO 16, 297-1988. The stars in these two articles are identical. We only retained the DAO paper, which was earlier. * AJ 87, 1679-1982 and AJ 94, 1600-1987. Some stars are in the two papers with the same data. In this case, the second publication was ignored. * APJS 64, 487-1987. We detected errors in the mean radial velocities, and we recalculated mean RV * AAPS 48, 409-1982. As requested by the authors, the radial velocities published there replace those form AAPS 13, 173, 1974: the latter data were removed from the catalogue. * AJ 93, 463-1987. These stars are from the study of van den Berg (1971), and they differ from those indicated in SIMBAD which are from an earlier publication of the same author (1966). * Corrections have been made in the papers AAPS 43, 297-1981, AAPS 49, 483-1982, AAPS 58, 435-1984 et AAPS 68, 515-1987, with the authorisation of the authors. * AAPS 4, 231-1971. The corrections published by the author in the erratum in AAPS 16, 277-1974 have been taken into account. References: Batten A.H. et al., 1989, Pub. Dominion Astroph. Observ.
