FK5 - SAO - HD - Common Name Cross Index Smith W.B. <Unpublished (1996)>
ADC_Keywords: Positional data ; Cross identifications Description: The author has combined data from various catalogs to produce a cross index of the numbers in the FK5 (I/149, I/175), SAO (I/131), and HD (III/135) catalogs. He has also added the Bayer or Flamsteed designations and the common or variable star names. File Summary:
