Table information for 'urat1.main'


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

Resource Description:

URAT1 is an observational catalog at a mean epoch between 2012.3 and 2014.6; ot covers the magnitude range 3 to 18.5 in R-band, with a positional precision of 5 to 40 mas. It covers most of the northern hemisphere and some areas down to -24.8° in declination.

In the GAVO data center, we left out all columns originating from cross matches with other catalogs; on-the fly crossmatches can be done in our TAP service.

For a list of all services and tables belonging to this table's resource, see Information on resource 'The first U.S. Naval Observatory Astrometric Robotic Telescope Catalog URAT1 star catalog'

Citing this table

This table has an associated publication. If you use data from it, it may be appropriate to reference 2015AAS...22543301Z (ADS BibTeX entry for the publication) either in addition to or instead of the service reference.

To cite the table as such, we suggest the following BibTeX entry:
