Tycho-2 WDS Supplemental stars

Last Updated: January 10th 2017

Changes:

  • Fixed the miss spelled name of the SDB to Supplemental was Suplemental
  • Compiled using Object type Double Star rather than "Star"
  • Cleaned up the assignment of the fields for cleaner looking data

This file contains stars specific to double stars as found in the Washington Double Star catalog. These stars, 4,778 of them, will help fill in some areas although most likely not "all" areas whereby one of the companion stars is not available. That is cannot be found in the NOMAD catalog, the Hipparcos/Tycho, UCAC4, GSC, etc.

This is an SDB (Sky Database) for use with TheSkyX. SDB's should be placed in the following "default" user location:

My Documents\Software Bisque\TheSkyX Professional Edition\SDBs

folder. Or replace Professional Edition with "Serious Astronomer Edition".

Once the downloaded file has been unzipped/extracted to the folder above it will appear in TheSkyX under Input>Database Manager>Sky Databases (SDBs)>My Sky Databases. To enable the SDB place a check there. The database is searched by using

Edit>Find Tyc-WDS {double star} example

Edit>FindTYC-WDS 21103+1008

You can also use the "Advanced" tab on the Object information window then expand the SDB "Tycho-2 WDS Supplemental stars" found under Sky Databases (SDBs). Make you have enabled the SDB first under Input>Database Manager>My Databases.
