Proper Motion Search for Pulsars

Abstract

An attempt has been made to identify optically three pulsars by proper motion surveys in the vicinity of the radio positions. An object at a distance of 100 pc having a velocity of 200 km s-1 perpendicular to the line of sight would have a proper motion of 0•4 arc s yr-1 and should therefore, if bright enough, be identifiable from a pair of photographs taken 10 or 20 yr apart.
