Proper motions of open clusters within 1 kpc based on the TYCHO2 Catalogue.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present mean absolute proper motions of 112 open clusters, determined using the data from the Tycho2 Catalogue. For 28 clusters, this is the first determination of proper motion. The measurements made use of a large number of stars (usually several tens) for each cluster. The total number of stars studied in the fields of the 164 open clusters is 5016, of which 4006 were considered members. The mean proper motions of the clusters and membership probability of individual stars were obtained from the proper motion data by applying the statistical method proposed by Sanders (1971A&A....14..226S).
