As in Figure 5, but ignoring the Washington photometry information. This alternative selection is presented in order to analyze the complete AAOmega data set, as our DDO 51 survey does not fully cover all of the AAOmega fields (see Figure 1). While this should result in a lower fidelity sample than that in Figure 5, it allows us to examine better the possible spread perpendicular to the stream. Note that we use ﹩{P}_{\mathrm{membership}}\gt 0.5﹩ for the present selection. To aid visual comparison, the lines in panels (a) and (b) are copied from Figure 5.
