Abstract

The Southern Proper Motion Program (SPM) is described and progress in the execution of the second-epoch is outlined, as are the reduction methods. Recent changes in the instrumentation, including the addition of a computer control room to the astrograph building and the construction and operation of a new survey machine are discussed.
