Twenty nine rovibronic lines of 12C17O for which laboratory wavelengths were previously unavailable were detected in laser-induced fluorescence excitation spectra of the six vibronic bands A1Π(υ' = 0-5)-X1Σ+(υ'' = 0). Rovibronic lines of 12C16O, 13 C16O, 12C17O, and 12C 18O were detected in each band, allowing accurate determination of the unknown wavelengths using neighboring 12C16O and 13C16O lines as reference. The new wavelength data yield consistent heliocentric velocity values when applied to vacuum ultraviolet observations of 12C17O and 12C 18O in the interstellar medium.
