Table information for ''


This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: From 1986 through 1991, the Astronomical Institute of Münster University performed a search for flare stars in several southern associations and open stellar clusters using the GPO telescope (d=40 cm, WFPDB identifier ESO040); the fields suveyed include Coalsack, M42, B228 Lup, the Chameleon T1 association, omicron Vel cluster, R CrA association, the Pipe nebula (B59 Oph), and the Sco-Oph association. This was done primarily through multiple exposures. The files published here are plate scans done in 2017. The obscore collection name for these files is Muenster Flare Survey.
