Source Catalogs

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

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