  • A master catalog of stellar proper motions in the field of the Pleiades young open cluster has been created based on data adopted from 12 catalogs. A total of 340 likely cluster members are identified, 80% with linear-velocity components in the plane of the sky estimated to better than 0.7 km/s. The average radial and tangential motions are analyzed. No rotation of the cluster or expansion or compression of the cluster as a whole or of its parts was found. The dispersion of the residual… CONTINUE READING
