Parallaxes of Selected Stars Near the North Galactic Pole

Extract

As a contribution toward settling the question of the distances of Murray-Sanduleak (M-S) stars (Murray and Sanduleak, 1972), two of these stars were added to the U. S. Naval Observatory (USNO) program in 1973. After the initial plates had been taken, it appeared that parallax for an additional star could be measured on one series, while parallaxes for two additional stars were possible from the second. As a result provisional parallaxes are now available, Table I.

In terms of USNO parallaxes, these are considered provisional because they are based on half the number of plates on which the final parallaxes are ordinarily determined; only small changes are expected when additional material is added beyond the present.
