Catalogue of 1068 “Intermediate” Stars situated between 51° and 65° South Declination for the Equinox 1900: From Observations made at the Sydney Observatory, New South Wales, Australia, during the Years 1918–1919, under the Direction of Prof W Ernest Cooke

Abstract

SOMEWHAT novel lines have been adopted in this catalogue. Prof. W. E. Cooke has endeavoured to follow literally the resolutions of the Paris Astrographic Congress of 1909, which divided the stars to be observed into three classes—Fundamental, Intermediate, and Reference—the second class being deduced from the first by differential methods, and in turn serving as standards for the third class, which are to be used to give co-ordinates on the Astrographic Plates. The position of the Fundamental stars in the zone were taken from the Cape Catalogue, 1900, using the propermotions given there. The new Catalogue reproduces their assumed places with mean discordances of o-ooi8 and 0-02″. The probable error of a catalogued position is found to be + o-oo6s sec S, and ± 0-13″.
