Create a Summary:

This option creates a summary of data for all objects within 2 arcminutes of a source name you choose. The purpose of this feature is to return all observations of the source, even those listed under alternate names (many sources have been referred to by more than one name in the literature).

Clicking a green button brings up a list of object with base names which begin with the letter you have selected.
You can scroll through the list and click on a source name of interest.

[A] [B] [C] [D] [E] [F] [G] [H] [I] [J] [K] [L] [M]
[N] [O] [P] [Q] [R] [S] [T] [U] [V] [W] [X] [Y] [Z] [0-9]

(NOTE: The "0-9" button displays names composed only of numbers.)

REMEMBER: Sources are arranged alphabetically by the base name...

  • For a detailed explanation of Catalog source name formats, see Name Search Help.
  • Greek letter and constellation name abbreviations, etc., can be found in Object Name Help.
