The 102, 65, 62 photometric system
Eggen O.J. 1967, ApJ. Suppl. 14, 307
A total of 1300 observations in the UBV system have been obtained for 370 stars
mostly later than K5, north of -10 deg. and brighter than 6.5 mag (visual).
An additional 1000 observations of 260 of these stars were made using a 7102
photomultiplier and narrow-band filters centered near 6250, 6500 and 10200 A.
Also, 100 UBV and 150 narrow-band observations were made of 41 fainter, known
variables mostly of the semiregular and long-period types. The narrow-band
magnitudes and colors are referred to as follows: (102), the magnitude at 10200A; (65, 62), the magnitude difference between the band passes at 6250A, which
contains a strong TiO bandhead and 6500A which does not; and (102, 65), the
magnitude difference between the 10200 and 6500 A band passes, both of which
are relatively free of TiO and terrestrial water-vapor absorbtion.
The relation between the infrared luminosity, M(102), and the continuum color
(102, 65) for values of (102, 65) redder than about - 1.6 mag (black-body Te =
6000 deg. K) is found to be the same for young disk (Hyades group) and old disk
(Wolf 630 group, M67) giants. The reddest halo giants (M13, M5, M92) are at
(102, 65) = -1.0 mag (black-body Te = 4200 deg.) and at a given temperature are
about 2.5 mag brighter than the disk giants.
The TiO absorption in disk giants is the same as in the supergiants but less
than half that in the main-sequence stars of the same temperature.
The red instability region for disk stars begins near (102, 65) = -0.1 mag
(black-body Te = 2800). The young disk variables show a well-defined
The space motions indicate that the brightest red stars are about equally
divided between young and old disk populations.
