ADC_Keywords: Stars, early-type ; Stars, OB ; Radial velocities ; Space velocities Description: This document describes the magnetic tape version of a catalog of 1440 O-B5 star with radial velocities accurate to within 5 km/sec, located within 3 kpc of the sun and within 10 degrees of the galactic equator. Radial velocities, luminosities and spectral classifications have been included from the literature; proper motions have been compiled for 898 of the stars. File Summary:

Note (1): If no HD number is available, this designation represents depending on byte 22: "+" or "-" : sign of Bonner Durchmusterung (BD) or Cape Photographic Durchmusterung (CPD) For BD and CPD numbers, form is ZZNNNNNL where ZZ = absolute value of declination zone NNNNN = number within zone L = blank, or "A", "B", etc. "A" : Aitken Double Star Catalogue number "I" : Index Catalogue (IC) number "K" : Rspteyn (K) Selected Area number "M" : Messier's (M) Catalogue number "N" : New General Catalogue (NGC) number Note (2): the following remark concerns the magnitude: "P" indicates a photographic magnitude; "V" refers to a variable; "+" indicates a variable photographic ":" indicates last digit is uncertain Note (3): the absorption is most often from (B-V) measures. A value of 3 for the ratio of total to selective absorption has been assumed. The entry Av = 0.0 indicates that the computed value was negative, but always equal to 0.0 to one decimal place. Note (4): velocity not corrected for the solar motion Note (5): References of proper motions: --------------------------------------------------------------------- Number Prob.Err. # Stars (mas/yr) --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Bertiau, F.

Historical Notes: * September 1981 (Jaylee M. Mead, Robert S. Hill, ADC): The magnetic tape version of this catalog was obtained from the Centre de Donnees Stellaires (CDS), Strasbourg; it differed from the original catalog in that the spectral type and source references for the apparent magnitude, spectral type, absolute magnitude, absorption and proper motion were omitted. To facilitate processing of the data by computer, we have done the following: 1. Restored the spectral type and all source references 2. Combined Tables I and IV of the published catalog by adding the data for the 898 proper motion stars from Table IV to the appropriate entry in Table I, as indicated by the asterisk in Table I immediately following the running star number. The only entries omitted in the combined table were those which were duplicated in Table IV: star number, galactic longitude and radial velocity. 3. Separated out the Henry Draper Catalog numbers into one field with all other identifiers in the next field; also, separated radial velocity references into a separate field from the GCRV numbers. 4. Filled blank M, Av, and (m-M) fields with nines. * 14-Feb-1995 (J.Florsch and F.Ochsenbein, CDS): => inserted the decimal point in columns RVel, Vmag and Av to avoid any misinterpretation of missing decimals => corrected individual record 105 = HD 169271 * 17-Apr-2000 (F. Ochsenbein, CDS): added the description of refs.dat
