We determine the metallicity distribution function (MDF) of the Galactic halo based on metal-poor main-sequence turnoff-stars (MSTO) which were selected from the Hamburg/ESO objective-prism survey (HES) database. Corresponding follow-up moderate-resolution observations (R∼2000) of 682 stars (among which 617 were accepted program stars) were carried out with the 2.3 m telescope at the Siding Spring Observatory (SSO). Corrections for the survey volume covered by the sample stars were...[Show more]
