Notes: The catalogue lists 1684 stars around Selected Area 158 in Sgr. The field covers 25.2 sq°, from (J2000) 18h18.0m to 18h41.0m, and -27°25′ to -32°15′, with a limiting mag ~12ptg. My work provides other identifiers (HD and DM nos), not part of the original paper. While the list provides much data of a spectral nature, rather than variable stars, nevertheless a number of variable stars did turn up in the course of this work and will be of interest.
Other Sources: The construction of this catalogue is based on a paper and finder charts published by S.W. McCuskey (1964). GUIDE9 was used to generate on-screen charts for comparison, and to extract precise positions from UCAC3, SPM4, 2MASS and others. Modern photometry (V, B-V) from Tycho-2 was used to confirm identities, while the VizieR page at CDS was used to access other data as required. References: McCuskey, S.W. 1964. Astron. J. 69,104
