J/A+A/469/799  Torun catalog of post-AGB and related objects (Szczerba+, 2007)

An evolutionary catalogue of galactic post-AGB and related objects. Szczerba R., Siodmiak N., Stasinska G., Borkowski J. <Astron. Astrophys., 469, 799-806 (2007)> =2007A&A...469..799S
ADC_Keywords: Atlases ; Stars, late-type ; Stars, giant ; Cross identifications Keywords: stars: AGB and post-AGB - stars evolution - catalogs Abstract: With the ongoing AKARI infrared sky survey, of much greater sensitivity than IRAS, a wealth of post-AGB objects may be discovered. It is thus time to organize our present knowledge of known post-AGB stars in the galaxy with a view to using it to search for new post-AGB objects among AKARI sources. We searched the literature available on the NASA Astrophysics Data System up to 1 October 2006, and defined criteria for classifying sources into three categories: very likely, possible and disqualified post-AGB objects. The category of very likely post-AGB objects is made up of several classes. We have created an evolutionary, on-line catalogue of Galactic post-AGB objects, to be referred to as the Torun catalogue of Galactic post-AGB and related objects. The present version of the catalogue contains 326 very likely, 107 possible and 64 disqualified objects. For the very likely post-AGB objects, the catalogue gives the available optical and infrared photometry, infrared spectroscopy and spectral types, and links to finding charts and bibliography.

Note (1): For candidates, reason why object is treated as a candidate post-AGB. For example we put here each object if there are less than 5 bibliographic entries in ADS. For disqualified, reason why object is treated as a disqualified post-AGB Note (2): Designation, in order of preference, in one of the catalogues: LS, LSE, BD, CD and any other name deemed appropriate (if none of the listed catalogues has info about the object)
Global notes: Note (G1): the asterisk (*) indicates that this name was not attributed by the SIMBAD catalogue to our post-AGB object when we were preparing the catalogue in 2006
