The ASP (All-Sky Portable) catalog presents
1,163,237,190 optical objects in 100 files of 9Gb total download size. Fields are RA and Dec J2000
to tenth-of-arcsecond precision, red-blue photometry which yield magnitudes to a hundredth-of-magnitude
precision, PSFs and variability indicator, and flags for proper motion, survey epoch, photometry source
survey & catalog, and astrometry source survey & catalog. Full details are in the paper
and ReadMe. ASP was published as 2017, PASA 34, 25.
Here is the pre-print paper for the catalog.
Here is the ReadMe
, essential for its field descriptions and sample computer
code (in BASIC and Python) to process the fields.
