Hα emission-line stars in molecular clouds. II. The M 42 region.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present a deep survey of Hα emission-line stars in the M42 region using wide-field objective prism films. A total of 1699 Hα emission-line stars were identified, of which 1025 were previously unknown, within an area of 5.5°x5.5° centred on the Trapezium Cluster. We present Hα strength estimates, positions, and JHKs photometry extracted from 2MASS, and comparisons to previous surveys. The spatial distribution of the bulk of the stars follows the molecular cloud as seen in CO and these stars are likely to belong to the very young population of stars associated with the Orion Nebula Cluster. Additionally, there is a scattered population of Hα emission-line stars distributed all over the region surveyed, which may consist partly of foreground stars associated with the young NGC 1980 cluster, as well as some foreground and background dMe or Be stars. The present catalogue adds a large number of candidate low-mass young stars belonging to the Orion population, selected independently of their infrared excess or X-ray emission.
