     Be careful:  if this is the source paper for the data you 
mention, then the VRI results are already on the Cousins system!
The Moreno & Carrasco data were reduced directly against Graham 
E-region standards, so there was no Johnson R,I anything involved.
The two-color plots shown in the paper do involve transforming
standard relations by Johnson to the Cousins system, but that was
necessary because their VRI data are Cousins colors.
     Peripherally, I have keyed-in all the Carrasco et al UBVRI
series of papers (quite good data), adding coordinates, which has
been submitted to the CDS and is also available from:


This includes all the observations of the standard stars as well as
the program stars.
