J/AJ/102/395    BVR photoelectric sequences in the PSS        (Humphreys+, 1991)

BVR photoelectric sequences for selected fields in the Palomar Sky Survey and the magnitude-diameter relation HUMPHREYS R.M., LANDAU R., GHIGO F.D., ZUMACH W., LABONTE A.E. <Astron. J. 102, 395 (1991)> =1991AJ....102..395H (SIMBAD/NED Reference)
ADC_Keywords: Plate areas; Photometry Description: BVR photoelectric photometry and positions are reported for 437 stars in 49 Palomar Sky Survey fields. A relation is derived between the Johnson BVR photometry and the E and O photographic magnitudes on the Palomar plates. The BVR photometry, the E and O magnitudes, and the 1950 positions are presented in the accompanying catalog. File Summary:
