Re: FN Vir?
>Star 94283 on the TASS CD 23 might be FN Vir, not sure.
Since the Simbad coordinates are:
13 00 36 +05 41.0 J2000
it would be in Tom's stripe, but I thought CD23 only covered 6h-8h RA.
Shows what I know. Here are the J2000 coordinates, in case someone
wants to calculate proper motion themselves. The UCAC2 position
should be close enough for tass:
13 00 36.632 +05 40 56.57 epoch 1950.4 USNO-B
13 00 33.495 +05 41 8.15 epoch 2000.368 UCAC2
This star is bright enough to be in most of the proper motion catalogs:
Lowell (Giclas) G060-055 1.04 arcsec @288 deg
LHS (Luyten) 2264 0.973 arcsec @284.4 deg
It was on our photographic parallax program (8.4pc if I recall right),
but has not been observed in the CCD era.
Note that high proper motion objects are missed by most of
the surveys if their proper motion exceeds a certain amount (you can't
easily match across decades of plate epoch). One arcsec/yr is getting
close to that limit. Even for my 20yr timespan of taking CCD data,
I find that many stars are moving outside of my normal matching radius
and so I am going to have to rework my analysis pipeline one of these
