J/other/PASAu/10.140 Southern radio sources catalog (White, 1992)
A catalogue of 'Southern' radio sources with accurate positions White G.L. <Proc. Astron. Soc. Australia, 10, 140 (1992)> =1992PASAu..10..140W
ADC_Keywords: Radio sources ; Redshifts ; Magnitudes Abstract: A list of 900 radio sources with positional accuracies better than 0.5" has been prepared from seventeen lists of radio source positions found in the literature. This compilation includes all such sources south of declination +48° (the northern declination limit of the Compact Array of the Australia Telescope National Facility). Where available, optical identifications, optical magnitudes and redshifts are given as well as total-power flux densities. File Summary:

History: * 09-Feb-1999: Prepared via OCR at CDS. From printed version, the 1950 position of 1348-34 was modified as RA=13 48 20.31 instead of RA=13 38 20.31 * 11-Mar-2000: A check by H. Andernach showed that 1348-347 does not exist at all, and was in fact a confusion with 1438-347. This source was deleted, bringing the number of sources to 900.
