II/97         ANS UV Catalogue of Point Sources        (Wesselius+ 1982)

ANS UV Photometry Catalogue of Point Sources Wesselius P.R., van Duinen R.J., de Jonge A.R.W., Aalders J.W.G., Luinge W., Wildeman K.J. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 49, 427 (1982)> =1982A&AS...49..427W
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, ultraviolet Mission_Name: ANS Description: This catalog is a result of the observations made with the Astronomical Netherlands Satellite (ANS) which operated between October 1974 and April 1976. The ANS satellite observed in five UV channels centered around 150, 180, 220, 250 and 330nm. The photometric bands are: -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Band designation 15N 15W 18 22 25 33 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Central wavelength (nm) 154.5 154.9 179.9 220.0 249.3 329.4 Bandwidth (nm) 5.0 14.9 14.9 20.0 15.0 10.1 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The reported magnitudes were obtained from mean count rates converted to fluxes using the ANS absolute calibration of Wesselius et al. (1980A&A....85..221W). In addition to the ultraviolet magnitudes, the catalog contains positions taken from the satellite pointing, spectral types, and UBV data from other sources as well as comments on duplicity, variability, and miscellaneous notes concerning individual objects.

Note (1): the designation is assigned per the following prioritized order: for stars: Henry Draper (HD) number, Durchmusterung (DM) identification, other for nebular objects: NGC number, IC number, other Note (2): position as transmitted to the satellite for the observation Note (3): MK types are taken from the following sources (priority order): 1. Jaschek's selected Spectral types (1978, Cat. III/42); 2. Houk and Cowley (1975, Cat. III/31; 1978, Cat. III/51); 3. Buscombe's catalogues (1977, 3rd edition; 1980, 4th edition; Evanston, Illinois, USA) 4. or from the HD Catalogue (Cat. III/135). The format of the MK type is reasonably uniform in that temperature classes are in byte 24, subclasses in bytes 25-27, and luminosity classes/peculiarities in bytes 28-33; however, there are exceptions with Mount Wilson types and Wolf-Rayet stars where the luminosity classes and W character always begin in byte 24 also, resulting in a right shift of temperature classes and subclasses. Non-temperature classes, such as "P" (for peculiar) are also present, or the field can be entirely blank. Note (4): the magnitudes are taken from: 1. Nicolet's homogenized UBV (1978A&AS...34....1N) 2. the "Catalog of Stellar Identifications" (CSI, see Ochsenbein et al., 1981A&AS...43..259O) where mv is estimated from mpg and HD spectral type 3. or from other sources. Note that visual magnitude values are reported to lower precision (one decimal) then photoelectric V magnitudes. Note (5): Magnitudes are defined as: m = -2.5log F - 26.10 where F is the flux in W/m**2/nm. Mean count rates are converted to fluxes using the ANS absolute calibration given by Wesselius et al. (1980A&A....85..221W) and the fluxes used to derive the magnitudes reported. Note that data of varying precision are given, so bytes 63 and/or 64 may be blank. Note (6): number of separate pointings in the 25 band. Usually this number applies to all observation bands; however, at 15N and 15W the number can be smaller because the band was used in either the wide (15nm) or the narrow (5nm) mode. Also, the 33 band, and to a lesser degree, the 15 bands were more frequently affected by particle hits than the other three channels, thus resulting in the deletion of data in one or both when the other bands had data of good enough quality to be processed. Note (7): Duplicity: D indicates that at least two stars are present within 1arcmin of the pointing position according to the CSI. Note (8): Variability: V indicates variability in the UV results as determined by tests described in Section 7.2.2 of source reference. Note (9): the codes have the following meaning: ? : comment(s) in bytes 127 and/or 128 uncertain N : possible contribution from nebular emission SL: spectral type probably later than listed SE: spectral type probably earlier than listed V?: suspected variable; for some of these objects the groundbased information may be erroneously listed in the source catalogs E?: possible anomalous extinction (reddening) law C : cluster star in crowded field, with possible UV data contamination SD: possibly subluminous D : stars listed as double in source other than CSI D?: hot UV-bright companion probably present; may be a blue field star (field of view is 2.5x2.5arcminutes)
Acknowledgements: The present documentation is mostly taken from the "Documentation for the machine-readable version of the ANS ultraviolet photometry catalogue of point sources" bu Wayne H. Warren Jr. (August 1984; "ans.doc" file) History: A preliminary version of the catalogue was supplied by Dr. P. R. Wesselius to CDS in June 1980 (catalogue numbered II/60); another version was sent to ADC in March 1984, to which modifications and corrections detailed in section 4 of the "ans.doc" file were performed by Wayne H. Warren Jr., generating the catalogue numbered II/97. Two additional corrections were made in July 2001 at CDS: - Name of record#196, originally OXF+6725, is Oxf+25 6725 = EGGR 15 - U-B value of record #2392 = HD 156233, originally -00.5, set to -0.54
