J/AJ/116/180        Magellanic clouds ultraviolet observations (Parker+ 1998)

Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope observations of the Magellanic clouds Parker J.W., Hill J.K., Cornett R.H., Hollis J., Zamkoff E., Bohlin R.C., O'Connell R.W., Neff S.G., Roberts M.S., Smith A.M., Stecher T.P. <Astron. J. 116, 180 (1998)> =1998AJ....116..180P (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; Photometry, ultraviolet Mission_Name: UIT Keywords: Magellanic Clouds - open clusters and associations: general - stars: early-type - stars: luminosity function, mass function - ultraviolet emission Description: The catalog is derived from wide-field far-ultraviolet (FUV; 1300-1800Å) images of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC, SMC) obtained by the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UIT) during the Astro-1 (1990 December 1-10) and Astro-2 (1995 March 2-18) missions. The FUV magnitudes are derived from point-spread function photometry for 37,333 stars in the LMC (the UIT FUV magnitudes for 11,306 stars in the SMC were presented by Cornett et al. (1997AJ....113.1011C), with a completeness limit of mUV ∼ 15mag and a detection limit of mUV ∼ 17.5. The average uncertainty in the photometry is ∼ 0.1mag. File Summary:
