A catalog of spectroscopically identified white dwarfs.


Abstract (from CDS):

A catalog of 2249 white dwarfs which have been identified spectroscopically is presented complete through 1996 April. This compilation is the fourth edition of the Villanova Catalog of Spectroscopically Identified White Dwarfs. For each degenerate star, the following data entries with references are provided: (1) a catalog coordinate designation or WD number, in order of right ascension; (2) the right ascension and declination for epoch 1950.0; (3) the spectral type based upon the new system; (4) a catalog symbol denoting binary membership; (5) a list of most names known to exist for a given star; (6) proper motion and position angle; (7) broadband UBV photometry, V, B-V, U-B; (8) multichannel spectrophotometry, v(MC), g-r; (9) Strömgren narrowband photometry, y, b-y, u-b; (10) an absolute visual magnitude based upon the best available color-magnitude calibration or trigonometric parallax; (11) the observed radial velocity uncorrected for gravitational redshift or solar motion; and (12) the trigonometric parallax with mean error when available. Notes for unusual or peculiar stars and a coded Reference Key alphabetized by the first author's last name are presented, as well as an expanded table cross-referencing all names to the catalog WD number. An introduction and full descriptions of the entries are provided in the text.
