IV/27A            HD-DM-GC-HR-HIP-Bayer-Flamsteed Cross Index    (Kostjuk, 2002)

HD-DM-GC-HR-HIP-Bayer-Flamsteed Cross Index Kostjuk N.D. <Institute of Astronomy of Russian Academy of Sciences (2002)>
ADC_Keywords: Cross identifications Abstract: New Cross Index is constructed on the basis of data analyse of basic catalogs: BSC5 (V/50), Hipparcos (I/196) and CSI (IV/9).The full list of the stars with HD-number and Bayer-Flamsteed designations with later extension of various authors was edited according to printed atlases [1,2,3,4]. Some names of variable stars from these atlases was added to the list. The resulting list was edited after the review and the analyses of star names in catalogue list 'refs.dat'. The DM, GC, HR and HIP numbers were added. The DM numbers were taken from the Henry Draper Catalogue (III/135),the GC numbers were taken from General Catalogue of 33342 stars (I/113),the HR numbers were taken from BSC5 (V/50). Finally the list of proper names of stars was made from information analyses of the atlases [1,2,3,4] and the catalogs BSC5, Hipparcos, CSI and IV/22. The right ascensions, declinations and visual magnitudes for all stars were taken from Hipparcos and CSI catalogue if the star has no number in Hipparcos. File Summary:

Note (1): Durchmusterung Identification from HD Catalog III/135 consists of DM Catalog designation: BD north of -23 degrees, CD from -23 to -52 degrees, CP south of -52 degrees Sign of DM zone, DM zone, DM number and component identification if there are two or more HD stars with the same DM number (for multiple systems included in the Washington Catalog of Visual Double Stars the same designation are given). Note (2): Right ascensions, declinations and visual magnitudes for all stars were taken from the Hipparcos catalog and from the CSI for the stars that has no number in catalog Hipparcos.
