The Edinburgh-Cape Blue Object Survey - III. Zone 2: galactic latitudes -30° > b > -40°.


Abstract (from CDS):

The Edinburgh-Cape Blue Object Survey seeks to identify point sources with an ultraviolet excess.
Result. for zone 2 of the survey are presented here, covering that part of the South Galactic Cap between 30° and 40° from the Galactic plane and south of about -12^○_.3 of declination. Edinburgh-Cape zone 2 comprises 66 UK Schmidt Telescope fields covering about 1730 deg2, in which we find some 892 blue objects, including 423 hot subdwarfs ( ∼ 47 per cent); 128 white dwarfs ( ∼ 14 per cent); 25 cataclysmic variables ( ∼ 3 per cent); 119 binaries ( ∼ 13 per cent), mostly composed of a hot subdwarf and a main-sequence F or G star; 66 horizontal branch stars ( ∼ 7 per cent) and 48 `star-like' extragalactic objects ( ∼ 5 per cent). A further 362 stars observed in the survey, mainly low-metallicity F- and G-type stars, are also listed. Both low-dispersion spectroscopic classification and UBV photometry are presented for almost all of the hot objects and either spectroscopy or photometry (or both) for the cooler ones.
