III/259       Stephenson's dwarf K and M stars   (StKM)       (Stephenson, 1986)

Dwarf K And M stars of small proper motion found in a Large Spectroscopic Survey Stephenson C.B. <Astron. J. 91, 144 (1986)> =1986AJ.....91..144S Dwarf K and M stars of high proper motion found in a hemispheric survey. Stephenson C.B. <Astron. J. 92, 139 (1986)> =1986AJ.....92..139S
ADC_Keywords: Stars, dwarfs ; Stars, late-type ; Spectral types Abstract: More than 2000 candidates for K and M dwarf status, generally having proper motions that are either unknown or less than 0.2" per annum, have been identified in an objective-prism survey covering the entire sky north of declination -25deg and more than 10deg from the galactic plane. More than 95% have no previous indication that they are dwarfs. Several dozen appear to be visual double stars.
