Source Catalogs

ARO uses source catalogs based on the 12m model. Below are listed some of our standard catalogs.

  • standard.cat contains positions for some well-known molecular clouds.
  • linepnt.cat contain spectral line pointing sources.
  • vlbi.cat contains most sources in the vlbi pointing catalog.
  • cont.cat contains positions for strong galactic and extragalactic continuum sources which can be used as pointing sources.
  • star.cat contains positions for several evolved stars which have strong CO or SiO maser emission which are useful as spectral line pointing sources.
  • cal.cat contains continuum can spectral line calibration source from the JCMT.
