Note that the errors on the
proper motions are large (∼50mas/yr), and therefore the positions
computed at an epoch different from 1991.25 have a large (∼0.4")
The Tycho Epoch Photometry data can
be accessed from the morePhoto column
(includes VT, BT and Hp photometric data for Hipparcos stars
contains 526,280,881 sources, and is based on a
re-reduction of the Precision Measuring Machine (PMM) scans
from POSS-I O and E plates (>=-18°) and SRC-J and
ESO-R plates (<=-20°).
USNO-A2.0 was created by Dave Monet (Flagstaff Station, U.S. Naval Observatory.
The major difference between USNO-A2.0 and its previous version
USNO-A1.0 is that A1.0 used the
Guide Star Catalog as its reference frame whereas
A2.0 uses the ICRF as realized by the
USNO ACT catalog (Urban et al. 1997).
The VizieR search engine uses an
on-line compressed version
(3.6Gbytes) which was generated at CDS.
Note: The Guide Star Catalog has been constructed to support the
operational need of the Hubble Space Telescope.
It contains over 25 million positions for about 19 million
objects, of which more than 15 million are classified as stars.
The version 1.2 is a new astrometric reduction which results in
absolute position errors about 0.3-0.4 arcsec.

The Naval Observatory Merged Astrometric Dataset (NOMAD) contains
astrometric and photometric data for over 1 billion stars derived from
the Hipparcos (I/239), Tycho-2 (I/259), UCAC2 (I/289), and USNO-B1.0
(I/284) catalogs for astrometry and optical photometry, supplemented
by 2MASS (II/246) near-infrared photometry.
An efficient remote query program findnomad1 is
available in the cdsclient
package, for Unix/Linux platforms
Note: The limiting magnitude is about 15.2 in the GSC photometric system.
Note: see the UCAC4 document, and the
the fix for high proper motion stars.
