Distant Field Blue Horizontal Branch Stars and the Mass of the Galaxy I: Classification of halo A-type stars
This is the first in a series of three papers presenting a new calculation of the mass of the Galaxy based on radial velocities and distances measured for a sample of some 100 faint 16 < B < 20 field blue horizontal branch (BHB) stars. This study aims to
