A Search for Stars of Very Low Metals Abundance. III. UBV Photometry of Metal-Weak Candidates

Norris, John; Ryan, Sean G; Beers, Timothy C


We present photoelectric UBV photometry for some 2600 metal-poor dwarf and giant candidates selected from the HK objective-prism/interference-filter survey of Beers and colleagues. These data provide the basis for our ultraviolet-excess selection of objects having [Fe/H] ≲ -2.0 for a spectroscopic investigation in which we have obtained ∼ 1-2 Å resolution spectra of some 1000 objects. The present material may also prove useful for investigations of the metal-poor dwarfs and giants more...[Show more]
