We present a sample of 1777 bright (9 < B < 14) metal-poor candidates selected from the Hamburg /ESO Survey (HES). Despite saturation effects present in the red portion of the HES objective-prism spectra, the data were recoverable and quantitative selection criteria could be applied to select the sample. Analyses of medium-resolution (∼2 Å) follow-up spectroscopy of the entire sample, obtained with several 2-4 m class telescopes, yielded 145 new metal-poor stars with metallicity [Fe/H] < -2.0,...[Show more]
