J/PASP/107/299           Occultation Binaries Catalog       (Mason 1995)

Catalog of Photoelectric Measures of Occultation Binary Stars Mason B.D. <Publ. Astron. Soc. Pac. 107, 299 (1995)> =1995PASP..107..299M (SIMBAD/NED reference)
ADC_Keywords: Occultations ; Stars, double and multiple Keywords: catalogs: Occultations: Binaries, occultation; Binaries, visual Abstract: The observation of lunar occultation phenomena allows for the determination of binary star data which can not always be obtained using classical techniques. No complete catalog has been compiled since that of Evans (1981a) in spite of a 99% increase in the available data. This catalog presents a catalog of photoelectric and occultation measures of binary and multiple systems complete through 1994. File Summary:

Further information: Additonal information on the construction of the catalog is provided in occulcat.doc. The notes to the catalog are in occulcat.not and the references in occulcat.ref. History: * 20-May-1998: notes.dat and refs.dat were transformed into data tables (from original files occulcat.not and occulcat.ref) at CDS (F. Ochsenbein)
