We present the second installment of GOSSS, a massive spectroscopic survey of Galactic O stars, based on new homogeneous, high signal-to-noise ratio, R ∼ 2500 digital observations from both hemispheres selected from the Galactic O-Star Catalog (GOSC). In this paper we include bright stars and other objects drawn mostly from the first version of GOSC, all of them south of δ = −20°, for a total number of 258 O stars. We also revise the northern sample of Paper I to provide the full list of… 

THE GALACTIC O-STAR SPECTROSCOPIC SURVEY (GOSSS). III. 142 ADDITIONAL O-TYPE SYSTEMS

This is the third installment of the Galactic O-Star Spectroscopic Survey (GOSSS), a massive spectroscopic survey of Galactic O stars, based on new homogeneous, high signal-to-noise ratio, R ∼ 2500

New O-type stars in the LAMOST Data Release 3

In this paper, we present a sample of 27 new Galactic O-type stars found in the Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) Data Release 3 (DR3). The new O-stars were

The X-ray catalog of spectroscopically identified Galactic O stars

The X-ray emission of O-type stars was first discovered in the early days of the Einstein satellite. Since then many different surveys have confirmed that the ratio of X-ray to bolometric luminosity

Massive Stars in the SDSS-IV/APOGEE2 Survey. III. New OB Stars in the Direction of the Sagittarius Spiral Arm

We have applied the semi-empirical spectral analysis, developed by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS)-IV/Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment 2 (APOGEE2) Massive Star Team, to a

NEW LUMINOUS ON SPECTRA FROM THE GALACTIC O-STAR SPECTROSCOPIC SURVEY

Two new ON supergiant spectra (bringing the total known to seven) and one new ONn giant (total of this class now eight) are presented; they have been discovered by the Galactic O-Star Spectroscopic

SOAR OPTICAL AND NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROSCOPIC SURVEY OF NEWLY DISCOVERED MASSIVE STARS IN THE PERIPHERY OF GALACTIC MASSIVE STAR CLUSTERS I-NGC 3603

In this work, we present the results of a spectroscopic study of very massive stars (VMSs) found outside the center of the massive stellar cluster NGC 3603. From the analysis of the associated

Optical-NIR dust extinction towards Galactic O stars

[ABRIDGED] Context. O stars are excellent tracers of the intervening ISM because of their high luminosity, blue intrinsic SED, and relatively featureless spectra. We are currently conducting GOSSS,

Far-infrared emission of massive stars

We present results of the analysis of a sample of 22 stars of spectral types from O7 to B5 and luminosity classes I–V for which spectra from the Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) of Spitzer are available.

Young star clusters and the structure of the second Galactic quadrant II

Galactic spiral arms are traced using young objects as giant molecular clouds, H ii regions, OB stars, or young open/embedded clusters. To improve the knowledge of the Galactic structure in the

MONOS: Multiplicity Of Northern O-type Spectroscopic systems. II. Orbit review and analysis for 35 single-lined spectroscopic binary systems and candidates.

Context. Multiplicity in massive stars is key to understanding the chemical and dynamical evolution of galaxies. Among massive stars, those of O type play a crucial role due to their high masses and

We present the results of time-resolved spectroscopy of 13 O-type stars in the Cas OB6 stellar association. We conducted a survey for radial velocity variability in search of binary systems, which

A New Spectral Classification System for the Earliest O Stars: Definition of Type O2

High-quality, blue-violet spectroscopic data are collected for 24 stars that have been classified as type O3 and that display the hallmark N IV and N V lines. A new member of the class is presented;

High-resolution imaging of Galactic massive stars with AstraLux. I. 138 fields with δ > - 25°

Context. Massive stars have high-multiplicity fractions, and many of them have still undetected components, thus hampering the study of their properties. Aims. I study a sample of massive stars with
