The Attitude Star Catalog will be used by the first iteration of the on-ground attitude reconstruction. Description: The IGSL is a compilation catalog produced for the Gaia mission. We have combined data from the following catalogs or datasets to produce a homogenous list of positons, proper motions, photometry in a blue and red band and estimates of the magnitudes in the Gaia G and G_RVS bands. Included Catalogs: Tycho2, LQRF, UCAC4, SDSS-DR9, PPMXL, GSC23, GEPC, OGLE, Sky2000, 2MASS. Note that in compiling the various entries we did not consider the individual flags. Overall, we think this catalog is reliable but there will be errors, mismatches and duplicates. The user should use this catalog with that in mind, it is fine for statistical studies that has some way to remove obviously incorrect entries but it should only be used with care for individual objects. The source catalogs used to produce the IGSL are: * The Gaia Ecliptic Pole Catalog, version 3.0 (GEPC) Altmann & Bastian 2009, "Ecliptic Poles Catalogue Version 1.1" ESA Document GAIA-C3-TN-ARI-MA-002 URL * GSC2.3: GSC2 version 2.3, Lasker et al. 2008AJ....136..735L (I/305) * an excerpt of the 4th version of the Gaia Initial QSO Catalog (GIQC) as compiled by the GWP-S-335-13000, formed by Alexandre H. Andrei, Christophe Barache, Dario N. da Silva Neto, Francois Taris, Geraldine Bourda, Jean-Francois Le Campion, Jean Souchay, J.J. Pereira Osorio, Julio I. Bueno de Camargo, Marcelo Assafin, Roberto Vieira Martins, Sebastien Bouquillon, Sebastien Lambert, Sonia Anton, Patrick Charlot * OGLE: Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment version III (Szymaski et al., 2011, Cat. J/AcA/61/83) * PPMXL: Positions and Proper Motions "Extra Large" Catalog, Roeser et al. (2010, Cat. I/317) * SDSS: Sloan Digital Sky Survey data release 9, Cat. V/139 * UCAC4: Zacharias et al., 2012, Cat. I/322 * Tycho-2, Hoeg et al., 2000, Cat. I/259 File Summary:

Based on the requirements discussed in the related publication. Note (4): This identifier refers to a custom version of LQRF used internally in the Gaia team and which was not published Note (5): Tycho-2 identifier (idTYCHO): These are the IDs as published in Tycho2. TYCHO-2 objects are identified by 3 numbers (TYC1,TYC2 and TYC3) and we have combined these into one complete number given by (TYC1*1000000.0d0)+(TYC2*10.0d0)+(TYC3*1.0d0). Due to an error in the inclusion of HIPPARCOS stars some HIPPARCOS objects have a TYCHO2 identifier of 9999999000000+HIPARCOS number. For the most part these should be used (when idHIP is null) but some times they are included as they were HIPPARCOS targets not found in Tycho-2. Note (6): 2MASS identifier (idTMASS): 2MASS provides indentifiers in a IAU standardized format as 2MASS JHHMMSS.S+DDMMSS.S . These are coded here as +HHMMSSSDDMMSSS. Note (7): OGLE identifier (idOGLE): The OGLE ID is given by a combination of A region of sky identifier (RI) equal to 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 corresponding to map names blg, car, cen, lmc, mus. So the ID here is defined as the file running number (NNN.N), the running number in the file (RN) combined as: long(string(RI)+string(NNN.N * 10000))+RN.
