Beginning of ReadMe : B/ocl Optically visible open clusters and Candidates (Dias+ 2002-2013) ================================================================================ New catalog of optically visible open clusters and candidates (V3.3) Dias W.S., Alessi B.S., Moitinho A., Lepine J.R.D. <Astron. Astrophys. 389, 871 (2002)> =2002A&A...389..871D ================================================================================ ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Proper motions ; Radial velocities ; Abundances, [Fe/H] Keywords: galaxy: open clusters and associations: general - catalogs Description: We have compiled a new catalogue of open clusters in the Galaxy which updates the previous catalogues of Lynga (1987, Cat. VII/92) and of Mermilliod (1995, in Information and On-Line Data in Astronomy, ed. D. Egret & M. A. Albrecht (Dordrecht: Kluwer), 127) (included in the WEBDA database, http://obswww.unige.ch/webda). New objects and new data, in particular, data on kinematics (proper motions) that were not present in the old catalogues, have been included. Virtually all the clusters (1629) presently known were included, which represents an increment of about 476 objects relative to the Lynga (1987, Cat. VII/92) catalogue. The catalogue is presented in a single table containing all the important data, which makes it easy to use. In total, 99% of the objects have estimates of their apparent diameters, and 38% have distance, E(B-V) and age determinations. Concerning the data on kinematics, 22% have their mean proper motions listed, 14% their mean radial velocities, and 11% have both information simultaneously.
