Abstract:

The purposes of the investigations have been the following a To conduct a search of the northern Milky Way for intrinsically luminous stars of early spectral type, to fainter apparent magnitudes than hitherto achieved systematically, b pursuant to point a, to check and, if possible, improve existing methods of classifying lowdispersion stellar spectra on objective-prism plates, c to test whether any gross features of galactic structure may be determined from the raw material of a, and d to utilize the objective prism plates secured for part a for the identification of other spectra of unusual interest falling in the survey area.
