Notes. Column 3 gives the spectral resolution R and Col. 4 the instrumental (systematic)vrad uncertainty. Column 5 gives the wavelength range(s) Δλ on which westandardised and reduced the spectra (see text). Columns 6 and 7 give the number of observed Cepheids N and the total number of acquired spectra Nsp for each instrument. (a)According to the literature. (b)When used in high-resolution mode.
