The Vatican Emission Star Survey: Review and Comments

  • Pierre Cardon de Lichtbuer (a1)

Extract

Eight years ago a program was started at the Vatican Observatory to search for faint emission-line stars close to the galactic plane. Indeed at that time few early type emission stars were known fainter than V = 12. This survey consists in a double program:the search for emission line stars with the Vatican Schmidt using the objective prism and an appropriate combination of plate and filter in order to have a narrow passband around Hα(McCarthy Treanor 1970);and UBVRI photometry at the Mt. Lemmon facilities of the Univ. of Arizona observatories. Five papers have already been published(Coyne et al 1974, 1975, 1978;Wisniewski et al 1976, 1977). Two more will be published later this year. The Vatican Emission Star Survey(VES) resulted in the discovery of about 1000 new emission-line stars; for 700 of those the photometry is finished.
