Case Low-Dispersion Northern Sky Survey. Thirteen of them are quasars, ranging in redshift from 0.0786 to 2.67, with a median redshift of 2. CSO 203 is a broad absorption-line quasar, and CSO 38 may have substantial associated absorption in the cores of emission lines. Several other objects show some intervening absorption, and all of them are bright enough to make the follow-up studies practical. CSO 251 is a bright (~15m), previously uncataloged quasar. The remaining objects are Galactic stars, five subdwarfs, and one hot white dwarf (CSO 160).
