Abstract

Empirical effective temperatures of 211 early-type stars found in a previous investigation (Kontizas and Theodossiou, 1980; Theodossiou, 1985) are combined with the effective temperatures of other 313 early-type stars found from literature. From these effective temperatures of a total number of 524 early-type stars of spectral types from O8 to F6 we derive a new stellar temperature scale and the standard deviation of the MK spectral classification.
