Table information for 'ucac3.icrscorr'

General

Table Description: Corrections between UCAC3 and the ICRS as represented by PPMXL on a grid of degrees, obtained by substracting UCAC3 from PPMXL in cones of radius sqrt(2)/2 degrees around the given center position.

This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: The Third US Naval Observatory CCD Astrograph catalogue (UCAC3) is an all-sky catalgoue containing just over 100 million objects covering about R = 8-16 mag. This table contains the original data content of UCAC3 but leaves out the data objetained by crossmatching to other catalogs.
