    An MK (Morgan-Keenan)-like system of spectral classification for hot subdwarfs is presented. We find that a three-dimensional spectral type, consisting of a "spectral" class, a "luminosity" class.   Gray & Corbally (; "Stellar Spectral Classification") have reproduced tables of MK standards in Appendix A of their book, however the compilation is not complete (missing especially many Keenan standards), some of the choices of standards are not necessarily the best available (after a thorough literature review), and the compilation is.

    Astronomers have devised a classification scheme which describes the absorption lines of a spectrum. They have seven categories (OBAFGKM) each of which is subdivided into 10 subclasses. Thus, the spectral sequence includes B8, B9, A0, A1, etc. A traditional mnemonic for the sequence is Oh, Be, A Fine Girl/Guy, Kiss Me! Fifty-one of the spectral/luminosity categories in the MK system are defined by specific Anchor Point Standard stars with stable and unobscured spectra — a classification procedure first applied by Secchi. These serve to document the defining category attributes in the same way that a holotype specimen is used to define a biological species.

    Spectral classification. In , β Ursae Majoris was listed as a spectral standard for the class of A1 V. When improved instruments made it possible to identify subgiant luminosity classes for early A class stars, β Ursae Majoris was assigned that class A0 llation: Ursa Major. Links to spectra appearing in the book spectra (those not otherwise attributed below) made available here may be used for education and research if the book Stellar Spectral Classification is referenced. Spectra from other on-line databases should also be properly referenced and acknowledged if used in a publication. MK Standards, A.
