J/A+A/383/188     Spectrophotometric atlas of symbiotic stars    (Munari+, 2002)

A multi-epoch spectrophotometric atlas of symbiotic stars. Munari U., Zwitter T. <Astron. Astrophys. 383, 188 (2002)> =2002A&A...383..188M
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Spectrophotometry ; Atlases Keywords: stars: binaries: symbiotic - atlases Abstract: A multi-epoch, absolute-fluxed spectral atlas extending from about 3200 to 9000Å is presented for 130 symbiotic stars, including members of the LMC, SMC and Draco dwarf galaxies. The fluxes are accurate to better than 5% as shown by comparison with Tycho and ground-based photometric data. The spectra of 40 reference objects (MK cool giant standards, Mira and Carbon stars, planetary nebulae, white dwarfs, hot sub-dwarfs, Wolf-Rayet stars, classical novae, VV Cep and Herbig Ae/Be objects) are provided to assist the interpretation of symbiotic star spectra. Astrometric positions and counterparts in astrometric catalogues are derived for all program symbiotic stars. The spectra are available in electronic form from the authors. File Summary:
