CMC15: Carlsberg Meridian Catalogue

This data server provides access to the CMC15 catalogue. CMC15 is an astrometric and photometric catalogue of more than 122.7 million stars in the magnitude range 9 < r (SDSS) < 17. With a positional accuracy to about 35 mas, the catalogue covers the declination range -40deg to 50deg.

The current release comprises all the observations made between March 1999 and March 2011. The catalogue fills the gap between 5h 30m and 10h 30m for declinations south of -15deg of the CMC14 and adds the bans -30deg to -40deg. Some zones north of -30deg have also been re-observed in order to improve their internal errors.



The CMC15 Data Access Service is the result of a collaboration agreement between the Centro de Astrobiología (CAB, INTA-CSIC) and the Real Instituto y Observatorio de la Armada en San Fernando (ROA). It has been developed in the framework of the Spanish Virtual Observatory project supported by the Spanish MINECO through grant AYA 2011-14052 and the CoSADIE FP7 project (Call INFRA-2012-3.3 Research Infrastructures, project 312559). The system is maintained by the Data Archive Unit of the CAB (CSIC -INTA).

If you use this service in your research, please include the following acknowledgement in any resulting publications: "Based on data from CMC15 Data Access Service at CAB (INTA-CSIC)".
