New high proper motion stars from the Digitized Sky Survey. III. Stars with proper motions 0.45"<µ<2.0"/yr south of declination -30°.


Abstract (from CDS):

We report the discovery of 182 southern stars with proper motion larger than 0".45/yr. The stars were found in an expansion of the SUPERBLINK proper-motion survey to 8980 deg2 south of decl.=-30°. The new high proper motion stars include 123 objects with µ>0".5/yr and 5 with µ>1".0/yr. These newfound stars consist of a variety of nearby red dwarfs and white dwarfs and (slightly more distant) red halo subdwarfs, and they are all prime targets for follow-up spectroscopic and astrometric (parallax) observations. Comparison with previous proper-motion surveys in the southern sky suggests that SUPERBLINK has a recovery rate between 80% and 90% at southern declinations for stars with red magnitude 10 mag<RF<19 mag and proper motion in the range 0".5<µ<2".0/yr. This survey makes a significant addition to the census of high proper motion stars at southern declinations.
