IV/28A           Catalog of high proper motion stars     (Ivanov, 2002)

Cross-identifications of stars with high proper motion. Ivanov G.A. <Kinematika Fiz. Nebesn. Tel., 18, 287 (2002)> =2002KFNT...18..287I
ADC_Keywords: Combined data ; Proper motions ; Cross identifications Description: The database of stars with high-proper motions (more than 0.04"/year) has been compiled using original definitions from catalogue FONAK1.0, the data of catalogues Hipparcos, Tycho-2, CMC (STAR 11), PPM, NPM1, NLTT,GCVS, Lowell Proper Motion, Bruce Proper Motion as well as the data of about 725 other published sources. The list consist of 251000 such stars with limiting magnitude 16 (companions for multiple systems up to 17) in a declination zone from -2 to +90 degrees. Besides astrometric parameters (equatorial coordinates, proper motions, estimations of stars magnitudes) the database includes some astrophysical characteristics (magnitudes in UBVRI system, radial velocities, spectra, luminosity class, metallicity; flags of multiple system, of variable star and other). For convenience of usage original numbers of stars from different catalogues the author's lists of stars and basic sources are given too. At present the database includes codes of 56 catalogues and author's lists of stars. The cross index list is given by a file of 228397 stars arranged by right ascension. Star information is recorded in a digital integer form with one line. Thus maximum amount of star numbers from catalogues and author's lists does not exceed 10 (if more, the number of lines for star is increased by unit). File Summary:

Note (1): Position accuracy flag is: 1 = uncertain on right ascension or declination 6 = erroneous mean declination Note (2): The type of multiple system takes the following values: 1 = uncertainty of multiple system 2 = rapid motion of companion (B) 3 = eclipsing binary 4 = orbital binary with orbital elements or without (B) 5 = optical binary 6 = true binary 7 = astrometric binary 8 = spectroscopic binary 9 = uncertainty of spectroscopic binary 10 = optical binary and eclipsing binary Note (3): The Multiple system indicator takes the following values: 20 = binary star (A) 21 = binary star (B) 22 = close binary star (A) 23 = active binary star (A) 30 = triple star (A) 31 = triple star (B) 32 = triple star (C) 33 = active triple star (A) 40 = multiple system (A,B,C,D,...),B,C,D,... - companions 52 = close binary star (A) and triple star (A) 62 = close binary star (A) and multiple system 63 = active binary star (A) and multiple system
