We present the third installment of the Yale/San Juan Southern Proper Motion Catalog, SPM3. Absolute proper motions, positions, and photographic BV photometry are given for roughly 10.7 million objects, primarily stars, down to a magnitude of V = 17.5. The catalog covers an irregular area of 3700 deg2, between the declinations of -20? and -45?, excluding the Galactic plane. The proper-motion precision for well-measured stars is estimated to be 4.0 mas yr-1. Unlike previous releases of the SPM… 
The Southern Proper Motion Program IV. The SPM4 Catalog
We present the fourth installment of the Yale/San Juan Southern Proper Motion Catalog, SPM4. The SPM4 contains absolute proper motions, celestial coordinates, and (B,V) photometry for over 103
The Lick Northern Proper Motion (NPM) program, a two-epoch (1947–1988) photographic survey of the northern two-thirds of the sky (δ -23°), has measured absolute proper motions, on an inertial system
The XPM Catalogue: absolute proper motions of 280 million stars
We combined data from the Two-Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) and USNO-A2.0 catalogues in order to derive the absolute proper motions of about 280 million stars distributed all over the sky excluding a
A Catalog of Candidate Field Horizontal-Branch and A-Type Stars. III. A 2MASS-Cleaned Version
We present coordinates and available photometric information (either from previous or recent broadband UBV observations, and near-infrared photometry from the 2MASS Point Source Catalog) for 12,056
Absolute Proper Motion of the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy Candidate
We have measured the absolute proper motion of the candidate Canis Major dwarf galaxy (CMa), at (l, b) =(240°, -8°). Likely main-sequence stars in CMa have been selected from a region in the
Space Velocities of Southern Globular Clusters. V. A Low Galactic Latitude Sample
We have measured the absolute proper motions of globular clusters NGC 2808, 3201, 4372, 4833, 5927, and 5986. The proper motions are on the Hipparcos system, and they are the first determinations
A Deep Proper-Motion Survey in Kapteyn Selected Areas. I. Survey Description and First Results for Stars in the Tidal Tail of Sagittarius and in the Monoceros Ring
We describe a high-precision, deep (to V ~ 19-21), absolute proper-motion survey that samples ~50 lines of sight in the Kapteyn selected areas along declination zones -15°, 0°, and 15°. In many
Absolute proper motion of the sagittarius dwarf galaxy and of the outer regions of the milky way bulge
We have determined the absolute proper motion of the Sagittarius dwarf spheroidal galaxy (Sgr) from the Southern Proper Motion Catalog 3, by selecting red giant candidates from the Two Micron All Sky
Probing the nature of possible open cluster remnants with the Southern Proper Motion Program
We discuss the nature of eleven Possible Open Cluster Remnants (POCRs) by using absolute proper motions from the Southern Proper Motion (SPM) Program 3 (Girard et al. 2004, AJ, 127, 3060) combined
The XPM catalogue as a realization of the ICRS in optical and near-infrared ranges of wavelengths
The final version of the XPM catalogue, created by the authors, contains about 314 million stellar positions and absolute proper motions and covers the whole celestial sphere without gaps in the


The Southern Proper Motion Program. II. A Catalog at the South Galactic Pole
We describe the Yale/San Juan Southern Proper Motion (SPM) Catalog 1.0, which provides positions, absolute proper motions, and photographic BV photometry for 58,880 objects at the South Galactic
The Southern Proper Motion Program. I. Magnitude Equation Correction
As with virtually all photographic plate material, the astrograph plates from which the Southern Proper Motion (SPM) catalog is being compiled suffer from magnitude-dependent systematic shifts in the
A Survey of Proper-Motion Stars. XIV. Spectroscopic Binaries among Metal-poor Field Blue Stragglers
We summarize the results from a program of monitoring the radial velocities of 10 metal-poor, high-velocity field stars whose colors are 0.01 to 0.13 mag bluer than main-sequence turnoffs of
The First US Naval Observatory CCD Astrograph Catalog
The USNO CCD Astrograph (UCA) started an astrometric survey in 1998 February at Cerro Tololo, Chile. This first, preliminary catalog (UCAC1) includes data taken up to 1999 November with about 80% of
USNO-B is an all-sky catalog that presents positions, proper motions, magnitudes in various optical passbands, and star/galaxy estimators for 1,042,618,261 objects derived from 3,643,201,733 separate
Spectroscopy of Hot Stars in the Galactic Halo. III. Analysis of a Large Sample of Field Horizontal-Branch and Other A-Type Stars
We present results from an analysis of medium-resolution spectroscopy and UBV photometry for a sample of 1121 A-type stars in the halo (and disk) of the Galaxy. A previously developed calibration
Young, high-velocity a stars. II. Misidentified, ejected, or unique
The ages, abundances, and kinematics of a large number of early-type stars at the south Galactic pole are derived to examine the properties, augment the sample of high-velocity stars, and study
Early-type stars in orthogonal halo fields. II: Identification of metal-rich A stars in the halo
The results of spectrophotometry of the Ca II K and Balmer lines and radial velocity measurements for stars earlier than type F0, with 10 −0.5. The metal-rich population has a vertical scale height
What are these blue metal-poor stars?
The radial velocity behavior and chemical compositions of sixty-two blue metal-poor (BMP) stars have been established from more than 1200 echelle spectra obtained at Las Campanas Observatory from
