I know that there is a Big Brain on this forum somewhere who knows the answer... :)

RECONS publishes their data- or at least the three data that I need (RA DEC parallax). I just can't find it.

Should I just use Hipparcos (or Gliese? which is better?) and add in all those dwarfs from CTIOPI?

EDIT-- Dammit. Hipparcos doesn't list the stellar class... It lists BVI color index, magnitude, and luminosity, but I cannot easily translate that into class. Also, Vizier is truncating all of my searches to 50 stars, and I can't figure out how to get a full list.

I didn't list it above, but I sort of assumed any catalogue would have stellar class, luminosity, and magnitude, all of which I want as well.
