Table information for 'lspm.main'


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

Resource Description: The LSPM catalog is a comprehensive list of 61,977 stars north of the J2000 celestial equator that have proper motions larger than 0.15"/yr (local-background-stars frame). Positions are given with an accuracy of <~100 mas at the 2000.0 epoch, and absolute proper motions are given with an accuracy of ~8 mas/yr. The catalog is estimated to be over 99% complete at high Galactic latitudes (|b|>15{deg}) and over 90% complete at low Galactic latitudes (|b|>15{deg}), down to a magnitude.

For a list of all services and tables belonging to this table's resource, see Information on resource 'The Lepine-Shara Catalog of High Proper Motion Stars'

Citing this table

This table has an associated publication. If you use data from it, it may be appropriate to reference 2005AJ....129.1483L (ADS BibTeX entry for the publication) either in addition to or instead of the service reference.

To cite the table as such, we suggest the following BibTeX entry:

  title={The Lepine-Shara Catalog of High Proper Motion Stars},
  author={Lepine, S. and Shara, M.M.},
  howpublished={{VO} resource provided by the {GAVO} Data Center}
