II/218              Sternberg Supernova Catalogue     (Tsvetkov+ 1998)

Sternberg Astronomical Institute Supernova Catalogue (1998July Version) Tsvetkov D.Yu., Pavlyuk N.N., Bartunov O.S. <SAISN group (1998)>
ADC_Keywords: Supernovae ; Surveys Description: The catalogue presents the main data on 1362 extragalactic supernovae (SNe) discovered up to July 13, 1998 and on their parent galaxies. SNe are ordered by Right Ascension of their parent galaxies. Data for parent galaxies were compiled from the following catalogues: RC3 (de Vaucouleurs et al., 1991, Cat. VII/155); UGC (Nilson, 1973. Cat. VII/26); PGC (Paturel et al., 1989, Cat. VII/119); MCG (Vorontsov-Velyaminov et al., 1962-1968, Cat. VII/62, VII/100); ESO (Lauberts, 1982, Cat. VII/34); CfA (Huchra et al., 1994, see Cat VII/193), and from van den Bergh (1994, Cat. J/ApJS/92/219). Main source of morphological types, major diameters and axial ratios was the RC3; the data from other sources have been reduced to the system of RC3. Photographic magnitudes of galaxies were adopted from the UGC and the PGC together with individual data from the literature. The sources of recession velocities or cz values were the RC3, the CfA, the PGC and IAU Circulars. Position angles were taken from the RC3, UGC and the ESO catalogues, and inclination angles were mainly derived from data in RC3 according to Holmberg (1958MeLu2.136....1H). Some data for SNe and parent galaxies were adopted from GCVS (Samus et al., 1995, Cat. II/205) File Summary:
