Read Entries From a Star Catalog
Catalogs available for searching include the SAO Catalog, the PPM Catalog, and the IRAS Point Source Catalog. There are preset scripts, rsao, rppm, and riras to read and search those catalogs. To search the Hubble Space Telescope Guide Star Catalog, use rgsc. To plot stars, use skymap.
The scat program in the
WCSTools toolkit provides
similar, but less extensive, search capabilities for a larger
number of catalogs and is available
as C source code.
