These data were first analyzed by Brown and coworkers (2001, Cat. J/ApJ/562/368), with an emphasis on the bright, blue horizontal-branch (HB) stars in this cluster. Here, our focus is on the population of fainter FUV sources, which include white dwarfs (WDs), blue stragglers (BSs), and cataclysmic variables (CVs). Description: NGC 2808 was observed with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) on board the HST in 2000 January-February. File Summary:

Note (1): Our α δ coordinates are based on the (J2000.0) coordinate system given by the FITS-headers, but have been shifted to achieve the best match to the Brown et al. (2001, Cat. J/ApJ/562/368) coordinates. This required offsets of -0.13" in α and -0.6" in δ, after which the rms differences between our coordinates and Brown et al.'s are only 0.006" in α and 0.048" in δ. However, as noted in Brown et al. although the relative astrometry is very accurate, the error in the absolute astrometry is much larger (∼1-2"). Note (2): Using star number counts, we determined the cluster center at α=9:12:2.96 and δ=-64:51:47.78 (J2000.0). Note (3): Additional comments, defined as follows: a = The tolerance radius for matching these sources in FUV and NUV was increased from 1.5 to 2 pixels. n = These pairs were added by hand, see text for details. e = These stars show a somewhat elongated shape on the FUV mosaic and are located mainly in its outer regions. v = Good variable candidate, see text for details. pv = Possible variable candidate, but too few measurements for a reliable statement. nv = Unsure variable candidate, measurements on the single images agree within the errors. pv-f = Unsure variable candidate: faint companion to a bright star. Measurements on the single images are extremely difficult and thus not very reliable.
