We present a machine selected catalogue of 11 289 objects with proper motions exceeding 0.18″ and an R-band faint magnitude limit of 19.5 mag. The catalogue was produced using SuperCOSMOS digitized R-Band ESO and UK Schmidt Plates in 287 Schmidt fields covering almost 7000 square degrees (~17% of the whole sky) at the South Galactic Cap. The catalogue includes UK Schmidt BJ and I magnitudes for all of the stars as well as 2MASS magnitudes for 10 447 of the catalogue stars. We also show that the NLTT is ~95% complete for Dec > -32.5°.
