ADC_Keywords: Stars, nearby ; Proper motions ; Radial velocities ; Spectral types ; Magnitudes, absolute ; Parallaxes, spectroscopic ; Parallaxes, trigonometric ; Space velocities Keywords: Nearby stars ; star: catalogue ; stellar parallaxes Description: From trigonometric parallaxes and from spectroscopic and photometric data published since 1969 and available before January 1979, 3 lists have been compiled: (1) Stars of the second edition of the catalogue of nearby stars (V/1) (main.dat) with revised parameters published in table 3 of the paper; it includes also additional faint components (table 4) (2) Additional stars with parallaxes π≥0.045arcsec (nearer than 22pc) (suppl.dat), contains 294 new objects numbered between 1001 and 1294; it was published as the Table 1 of the paper. The identifications of these new systems are given in the file "supplid.dat" (3) Suspected nearby stars: 159 objects with uncertain distance data, published as the Table 2 of the papers, numbered 2001 to 2159 (suspect.dat) File Summary:
