We present photometries of the Southern Milky Way () in the U, V and R-passbands. The resolution is . Together with the B-photometry (Kimeswenger et al. 1993 = Paper VII), this paper gives final results of the Bochum Super–Wide–Angle–Camera photographs obtained in 1971 at La Silla, calibrated by means of accompanying photoelectric observations. The techniques employed and procedures used for the reductions are the same as described in Paper VII, and the references quoted therein. Therefore, this paper is restricted to those points, where either modifications proved to be necessary or additional information will help to judge the accuracy obtained. For this purpose, the chapters are arranged in the same manner as in Paper VII.
