The All-Sky Portable (ASP) optical catalog  (2017, PASA 34, 25) 

 

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.   

The catalog can be downloaded from the PASA datastore at  http://dx.doi.org/10.4225/50/5807fbc12595f .  Please use the PASA datastore website to download the catalog files, as I have limited bandwidth (and they have infinite bandwidth).   

Web address of the PASA datastore page is: https://data-portal.hpc.swin.edu.au/dataset/the-all-sky-portable-asp-optical-catalog  

If the PASA datastore is down, files can be downloaded far below (scroll).
