Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a catalogue of 6206 stars which have proper motions exceeding 0.18arcsec yr-1 with an R-band faint magnitude limit of 19.5 mag. This catalogue has been produced using SuperCOSMOS digitized R-band ESO and UK Schmidt Plates in 131 Schmidt fields covering more than 3 000 square degrees (>7.5% of the whole sky) at the South Galactic Cap. The survey is >= 90% complete within the nominal limits of the Luyten Two Tenths Catalogue of mR = 80% complete for mR
