The catalog is based on observations collected during the OGLE microlensing search. This part contains 33196 stars brighter than I=18mag identified in the Baade's Window BWC field. Stars from remaining 20 OGLE fields will be presented in similar form in the next parts of the Catalog. File Summary:

History: Copied in April 1997 from * 20-Jan-2004: the version 'A' includes the new method for the X,Y->RA/Dec transformation introduced in OGLE-II, and re-applied to OGLE-I catalogs. The typical change in coordinates is 0.2 arcsec with a maximal value of 1 arcsec.
