A multi-epoch, absolute-fluxed spectral atlas extending from about 3200 to 9000 Å is presented for 130 symbiotic stars, including members of the LMC, SMC and Draco dwarf galaxies. The fluxes are accurate to better than 5% as shown by comparison with Tycho and ground-based photometric data. The spectra of 40 reference objects (MKK cool giant standards, Mira and Carbon stars, planetary nebulae, white dwarfs, hot sub-dwarfs, Wolf-Rayet stars, classical novae, VV Cep and Herbig Ae/Be objects) are provided to assist the interpretation of symbiotic star spectra. Astrometric positions and counterparts in astrometric catalogues are derived for all program symbiotic stars. The spectra are available in electronic form from the authors.
Key words: stars: binaries: symbiotic / atlases
Based on observations collected with the telescopes of the European Southern Observatory (ESO, Chile) and of the Padova & Asiago Astronomical Observatories (Italy).
