|Merged catalogue of reflection nebulae|
Several catalogues of reflection nebulae are merged to create a uniformcatalogue of 913 objects. It contains revised coordinates,cross-identifications of nebulae and stars, as well as identificationswith IRAS point sources.The catalogue is only available in electronic form at the CDS viaanonymous ftp to cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr (188.8.131.52) or viahttp://cdsweb.u-strasbg.fr/cgi-bin/qcat?J/A+A/399/141
|Space distribution and metallicities of globular clusters: The distance to the galactic centre|
The system of globular clusters in the Galaxy is used in order to locatethe position of the galactic centre and, consequently, to determine thegalacto-centric distance of the Sun, R0. The spacedistribution and metallicities of the whole sample of known globularclusters are taken in to account, and the obtained results indicate that8.6 greater than R0 (kpc) greater than 6.4. Analysis of aselected sample of clusters further suggests that R0 equals7.6 +/- 0.4 kpc.
|Catalog of CO radial velocities toward galactic H II regions|
This is a catalog of 242 molecular cloud complexes which are associatedwith optical H II regions. CO observations were made toward all but fiveof the H II regions in the Sharpless catalog and toward 62 additionalsuspected H II regions, 33 of which are previously uncataloged. Radialvelocities are tabulated for each molecular cloud complex found to beassociated with an H II region. The CO antenna temperature and linewidth are given for the most intense CO line seen toward each source.The catalog also summarizes previous CO observations as well as theoptical distances to the stars exciting the H II regions. Radio-quiet HII regions (those with 1.4 GHz flux densities less than 100 mJy) arefound to be well correlated with objects having no associated CO. A listof kinematically distinct complexes is tabulated to facilitateinvestigations of the motions of the complexes.
