II/274              IRAS Point Source Reject Catalog      (IRAS 1989)

IRAS Point Source Reject Catalog, Version 2.1 (1989) <Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) Catalogs and Atlases vol. 1, Explanatory Supplement, 1988, ed. C. Beichman, et al., NASA RP-1190> =2007yCat.2274....0I
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, infrared ; Infrared sources ; Surveys Mission_Name: IRAS Description: This is a catalog of 372,774 potential infrared point sources that failed one or more of the confirmation and confusion criteria and were not, thus, included in the IRAS Point Source Catalog (Cat. II/125). These REJECTED sources include spurious objects (e.g., processing failures, space debris, asteroids and comets) and celestial sources that, due to incompleteness at faint levels or to variability, failed to achieve the minimum criterion of two hours-confirmed sightings. In regions of high source density the catalog includes sources rejected by the more severe criteria for reliability applied there.

Note (1): Measured in degrees east of north between the major axis of the ellipse and the local equatorial meridian. Note (2): The spatially filtered 100 micron sky brightness to flux density ratio of point source (see Explanatory Supplement) Note (3): 3=high quality, 2=moderate quality, 1=upper limit Note (4): Low Resolution Spectra, see Cat. III/197 Note (5): The flux densities listed in the catalog are average values computed for the effective wavelengths of the IRAS bands and an assumed input energy distribution F(ν)∝1/ν (i.e. a spectral index of -1). See details in the Explanatory Supplement or at the IRAS archive site at Note (6): The hexadecimal encoding is the representation of a 4-bit number with values set to 1=12um, 2=25um, 4=60um, 8=100um. For instance, the value A=10=8+2 has flags set for 25 and 100um. Note (7): Values of SES1 greater than 1 should caution the user that significant extended structure may exist in the region and that the source in question may be a point-source like piece of a complex field. SES2 values greater than 0 means that the point source flux measurement should be treated with caution as the source in question may, in fact, be extended; the flux quoted in the catalog of small extended sources (Cat. VII/73) may provide a better value for the source. Note (8): from section V.C.4 of the Explanation: the point source correlation coefficient can have values in the range 87-100%, coded as alphabetic characters with A=100, B=99 .. N=87 Note (9): association with the following type of catalog: 1 = extragalactic catalog 2 = stellar catalog 3 = other catalogs 4 = matches in multiple types of catalogs 0 = no association
