R. Kurtev table of VVV parallax measurements -
This is an independently calculated set of parallax solutions for high proper motion stars within the high proper motion catalogue of Kurtev et al. (2017, MNRAS, 464, 1247). The approach differed from VIRAC in that each parallax calculation used a small number of bright astrometric reference stars around each high proper motion star.
