We present a spectral atlas of the post-main-sequence population of the most massive Galactic globular cluster, ω Centauri. Spectra were obtained of more than 1500 stars selected as uniformly as possible from across the (B, B − V) colour‐magnitude diagram of the proper motion cluster member candidates of van Leeuwen et al. The spectra were obtained with the 2dF multifibre spectrograph at the Anglo-Australian Telescope, and cover the approximate range λ ∼ 3840‐4940 A at a resolving power of…
