The CNS3 catalog contains all known stars as of that are within 25 parsecs of the Sun. It depends mainly on a preliminary version (Spring ) of the new General Catalogue of Trigonometric Parallaxes (YPC) prepared by Dr. William F. van Altena (Yale University). NASA CDS NAOJ Catalog of Faint Stars in the Cape Astrographic Zone to Degrees for CF by Spencer Jones+, D KB 3 files NAOJ 's General Catalog [new ver NASA The General Catalog of Trigonometric Stellar Parallaxes, Fourth Edition (GCTP4). Trigonometric parallaxes, relative proper motions, and photometry are presented for stars in systems. Of these stars, 70 are brighter than V = H. D. Ables's 39 research works with 2, citations and reads, including: Distant White Dwarfs in the US Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station Parallax Sample.

Trigonometric parallaxes, relative proper motions, and photometry are presented for stars in systems. Of these stars, 70 are brighter than V = Cite. An astronomical catalogue is a list or tabulation of astronomical objects, typically grouped together because they share a common type, morphology, origin, means of detection, or method of omical catalogs are usually the result of an astronomical survey of some kind. Over a 4 year period from to , the Hipparcos Space Astrometry Mission measured the trigonometric parallax of nearly , stars with an accuracy of arcsec. The GAIA mission, to be launched in , will be able to measure parallaxes to an accuracy of arcsec, allowing distances to be determined for more than million stars. The recent completion of the Fourth Edition of the General Catalogue of Trigonometric Stellar Parallaxes (YPC) has enabled us to re-calibrate the Mass-Luminosity Relation (MLR) for main sequence stars.

  The catalog of hierarchical stellar systems with three or more components is an update of the original version. For hierarchies, the new Multiple Star Catalog (MSC) provides distances, component masses and periods, and supplementary information . The primary compendia of trigonometric parallaxes are the General Catalog of Trigono-metric Stellar Parallaxes, Fourth Edition (van Altena et al. ), more commonly known as the Yale Parallax Catalog (YPC), and the Hipparcosmission (Perryman et al. ). The YPC is a compilation of parallax measurements for stars from various. Fourth Catalog Of Trigonometric Parallaxes Of Faint Stars. Part 4 Harrington, R. S., Dahn, C. C., Miranian, M., Riepe, B. Y., Christy, J. W., Guetter, H. H., Ables, H. D., Hewitt, A. V., Vrba. The catalog contains FK4 stars used for the adjustment to the FK4; stars from the AGK3 zones +88deg. and +89deg.; stars from the zone around the North Galactic Pole; stars from several PZT zones; some faint GC stars; reference stars for radio fields; and a few stars .
