1999A&AS..134..483H The Hamburg Quasar Survey. III. Further new bright quasars. HAGEN H.-J., ENGELS D., REIMERS D. Recieved July 9;accepted September 3, 1998 Abstract: We present a further list of 274 bright QSOs, 106(195) of which have B<~17 (17.5), selected semiautomatically from objective prism plates taken with the Calar Alto 80cm Schmidt telescope. All QSOs have been confirmed by follow-up spectroscopy and we display their flux-calibrated spectra. We also discuss the completeness of our search technique and demonstrate that for 0.1<=z<3.2 and B<=17 we have been able to recover roughly 85% of known QSOs; 10% were lost due to overlaps while 5% were lost during the selection process. In particular the bright z>=2 QSOs (17 with B<~17) are potential targets for follow-up spectroscopy both at high- resolution from the ground and in the ultraviolet from space. Key words: surveys - quasars: general
