[38.02] UV ISM Polarization of Galactic Starlight II. More Observations by WUPPE (Wisc UV Photo-Polarimeter)

Besides the stars with ISM polarization given in Anderson et al. (AJ 112, 2726) WUPPE obtained observations of several other stars which were targets of or were in the fields of targets of the other instruments on the ASTRO-2 Mission. For northern targets HD51285, HD31726, NGC2682 81 and BD+36 367 we will show observations made with WUPPE and HPOL (UW spectropolarimeter); for southern stars HD177999 and HD68049, we show only WUPPE data. These data are consistent with the general findings of Anderson et al. that the ISM polarization continues to decrease into the UV. WUPPE was supported by NASA contract 5-26777. www.sal.wisc.edu/~ajw/wupism2/postrMPL.txt.
