IV/17A      HD,HDE,DM Identifications in Open Clusters (Mermilliod 1986)

Catalogue of HD, HDE, and DM Identifications for Stars in Open Clusters Mermilliod J.C. <A&AS, 63, 293 (1986)> =1986A&AS...63..293M
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Cross identifications Description: The catalog is a compilation of cross-identifications between the numbering system of Mermilliod (1978) for stars in open clusters and the numbering systems of several other astronomical catalogs, including HR, HD-HDE, DM, LS, LSS, GCVS, IDS, ADS, SAO, and several smaller lists. Also included are files listing the inverse cross-identifications from each catalog to the Mermilliod (1978) numbers. This version updates and expands the version presented by Mermilliod (1976A&AS...23..419M). The catalog is in 13 files: the first file contains the main cross- identification list from the Mermilliod (1978) system to the other catalogs; the next 11 files contain the inverse lists from the catalogs to Mermilliod (1978); and the thirteenth file contains a list of the references adopted for the individual star numberings for each cluster used by the Mermilliod (1978) system.

Note on LID, m_LID: Code number based on the cluster in which the star is found and the number of the star in the designated reference. A brief description of this numbering system is included in the "Remarks" section below. The LID suffix is a single-character coded remark about this object. A number identifies one component of a multiple system. The following letters also appear: D = Unresolved binary S = Supplementary star. The identification for this star is the same as another in the list, followed by "a" or "s". V = Variable star Note on HR: Number from the Yale Bright Star Catalog (Hoffleit and Jaschek 1982, see Cat. V/50) Note on HD: Number from the Henry Draper Catalog (Cannon and Pickering 1918-1924; Cannon 1925-1936, Cat.

1- 9 A9 --- Cluster *Cluster number 13- 78 A66 --- Ref *Reference
Note on Cluster, Ref: The Reference File (file 13) lists the references to the numbering within each cluster, as used in the Mermilliod (1978) system. The fields in the Reference File are defined as follows: Cluster Number of the cluster in the system of Mermilliod (1978). The last four bytes contain "BBBB" where the star number would normally occur. A brief description of this numbering system is included below, in Appendix A. Ref Reference which defines the numbering system for the stars of this cluster. When bytes 1-9 are blank, this field continues the reference of the previous cluster.
Remarks: A Catalogue of DM, HD(E) and Other Cross-Identifications for Stars in Open Clusters was received by the Astronomical Data Center (ADC), NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, from the Centre de Donnees Astronomiques, Strasbourg (CDS), in July 1985. The original tape consisted of 14 files. The first file contained a brief description of the 13 catalog files and has been incorporated into this document. Of the remaining files, the first held the cross-identification file, the second through twelfth contained the inverse files, and the thirteenth contained the star numbering references. Blank columns were removed from the beginning and end of all records in the inverse files, to reduce the record size from 40 to 26 bytes. In the reference file, two header records were deleted and the cluster numbers were reformatted slightly to coincide with the format of the star numbers in the catalog files, reducing the record size from 80 to 78 bytes. The file containing the inverse identifications for the stars with Durchmusterung numbers originally contained only those stars with no other identification. At the suggestion of J.-C. Mermilliod, this file was recompiled from the main catalog file and now includes all stars with a DM number listed in the main file. The following is a very brief description of the numbering system used in Mermilliod (1978) for stars in open clusters. It is taken directly from Mermilliod (1978) and Mermilliod (1985). See Mermilliod (1978) for a complete description of this numbering system and a list of the various code numbers used. Nine-digit numbers are used to identify a star according to cluster membership: the first digit indicates the source catalog; the next four digits represent the number of the cluster within that catalog; and the final four digits are the number of the particular star within that cluster, as adopted by the standard reference for the system. These references are listed in the thirteenth file of this catalog. The following is a summary of the main divisions for clusters in this catalog. Number Cluster Format Type Meaning ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2NNNNXXX NGC NNNN = NGC number XXXX = star number 3IIIIXXXX IC IIII = IC number XXXX = star number 4AABBXXXX Anonymous AA = author code (1-41) BB = cluster number in author's list (1-99) XXXX = star number 5ABBBXXXX Anonymous A = author code (1-5) BBB = cluster number in the list XXXX = star number ------------------------------------------------------------------------ References: Aitken, R.
