The Garraf Wide Pairs (GWP) catalogue (2016)

OAG Common Proper Motion Wide Pairs Survey (CPMWPS) is a Pro-Am project , developed and coordinated by the Garraf Astronomical Observatory and the Spanish Virtual Observatory, aiming at finding new common proper motion systems not yet catalogued. Making use of Virtual Observatory tools, we completed in the period 2008-2016 a systematic exploration of the Equatorial Zone (from RA 00h 00m 00s to 23h 59m 59s at declinations between DEC +20º 00’ 00” to -20º 00' 00" ). Only objects with proper motion higher than 50 marcsec/year were considered. The GWP Catalog includes 3382 new pairs.
