V/131               Catalogue of LMC stars           (Duflot M. 2009)

Catalogue of identifications, velocities, spectral types and UBV photometry of Large Magellanic Cloud stars. Duflot M. <CDS (unpublished, 2009)> =2010yCat.5131....0D
ADC_Keywords: Magellanic Clouds ; MK spectral classification ; Photometry, UBV ; Radial velocities ; Cross identifications Description: This catalogue is a compilation of the original data related to stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC); it concerns essentially the stars brighter than mpg=13.5. The list includes many comments (in English and French) about errors, identification problems, or membership of 4011 stars. File Summary:

ReadMe 80 . This file lmc.txt 120 27775 *The database of LMC stars main.dat 94 4011 Summary of stars (from lmc.txt) names.dat 15 7878 All names (from lmc.txt) refs.htx 68 341 List of references
Note on lmc.txt: in this file, one star is described by a paragraph (set of lines preceded and followed by a blank line), where the 4 leftmost digits represent the sequential ID number. The first line of a paragraph contains the HD number; the second line (labelled CDS2000) contains the fundamental data extracted from Simbad (in 2005). Each of the lines following are, either a comment (lines having "Com" or "Rem" in bytes 5-8), or data formatted in columns: * bytes 5-15: identifier (see the "Acronyms used" section above) * bytes 16-35: coordinates, at the Equinox specified in the "Acronyms used" section below * bytes 36-59: photometry, made of V, B-V, U-B, and number of photometric measurements * bytes 60-68: MK or HD spectral type * bytes 69-80: radial velocity with quality and number of measurements.

In this case, there are 2 lines in the "lmc.txt" file, as "ROU " or "ROU&" (2) in Rousseau et al. catalog (1978A&AS...31..243R) some stars are introduced for the first time, and are named with their truncated coordinates, e.g. 0536-6841, as found later in Massey (2002ApJS..141...81M) (3) acronyms not followed by an asterisk (*) are not numbered in the quoted publication, but identifications from a previous publication are used.
