Beginning of ReadMe : I/86A Sydney Southern Star Catalogue (King+ 1983) ================================================================================ Sydney Southern Star Catalogue King D.S., Lomb N.R. <J. Proc. R. Soc. N. S. W. 116, 53, (1983)> ================================================================================ ADC_Keywords: Positional data; Proper motions Description: This catalogue principally covers the range between -51deg. and -63.5 deg and contains positions and proper motions for 29,926 stars. 3244 faint Astrographic stars were added to supplement the stars at fainter magnitudes. Positions in standard form (hours, minutes, and seconds of time for the right ascensions and degrees, minutes, and seconds of arc for the declinations) have been added to the machine readable version of this catalogue. Introduction: The Sydney Southern Star Catalogue contains the results of the Sydney Observatory astrometric program during the two decades ending in 1983. Declination zones centered on -53.5, 58.5, -56.0, -58.5, -61.0, and -63.5 deg. have been measured and are included. The plates were taken with a 23-cm Taylor, Taylor, and Hobson camera and measured with a Grubb-Parsons photoelectric measuring machine. The reference catalogue used was the WL50. The standard error of a position based on four images is 0.10" in either coordinate. A 2.3 magnitude diffraction grating was used to produce side images shifted from the central image in declination. The stars selected were compiled from the Cape Photographic Catalogue for 1950 (CPC) (Jackson and Stoy 1954-1958), International Reference Stars (IRS) (Scott 1962), Cape Zone Cataloge for 1900 (ZC) (Gill and Hough 1923, Spencer Jones and Jackson 1936), Albany General Catalogue (GC) (Boss 1937) and the Sydney Astrographic Catalogue (AC) (Nangle and Wood 1925-1971). The Sydney AC was used to obtain 3244 supplementary faint stars so that about one star per square degree is in the photographic magnitude range 11.0 to 11.5. All of the AC stars were given a magnitude of 12.0 to distinguish them as AC stars although they are presumed to be in the stated photographic magnitude range. In the area south of -63.5 deg., only the IRS stars were selected for measurement. This was to give complete plate coverage for the determination of plate constants for the plates centered at -6358.5 deg. 395 IRS stars are included in this zone. CPC stars and AC stars were selected for measurement between declinations -52deg. and -63.5 deg. Between -51deg. and -52deg., the measuring list was prepared by supplementing the few CPC stars in this area with ZC stars, GC stars, and IRS stars. In general, stars brighter than photographic magnitude 6.0 were excluded and stars brighter than photographic magnitude 8.1 had their first order side images measured as well as the central image, giving three measurements.
