S201 catalog of far-ultraviolet objects by Thornton Page( Book )

6 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A catalog of star images was compiled from images obtained by an NRL Far-Ultraviolet Camera/Spectrograph (Experiment S201) operated from 21 to 33 April 1972 on the lunar surface during the Apollo-16 mission. These images were scanned on a microdensitometer, and the output recorded on magnetic tapes. A set of seven computer programs were written to process these recorded outputs in order to compile the catalog. The catalog is divided into 11 parts, covering ten fields in the sky (the Sagittarius field being covered by two parts), and each part is headed by a constellation name and the field center coordinates. The errors in position of the detected images are less than about 3 arc-min. Correlations are given with star numbers in the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory catalog. Values are given of the peak density and the density volume (a product of the number of pixels in the image and the density units above background in each pixel). The text includes a discussion of the photometry, corrections thereto due to threshold and saturation effects, and its comparison with theoretical expectation, stellar model atmospheres, and a generalized far-ultraviolet interstellar extinction law. The S201 catalog is also available on a single reel of seven-track magnetic tape. (Author)

S201 far-ultraviolet atlas of the large magellanic cloud by Thornton Page( Book )

6 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Far-ultraviolet electrographic images, covering the wavelength ranges 1050 to 1600 A and 1230 to 1600 A, were obtained of the Large Magellanic Cloud during the Apollo 16 mission with the NRL Far-Ultraviolet Camera/Spectrograph (Experiment S201). The images have about 4-arc-minute resolution and reveal early-type star associations, individual early-type LMC stars, and galactic foreground stars. The images were analyzed in the manner described in the S201 Catalog of Far-Ultraviolet Objects (NRL Report 8173), and isodensity contour maps of the LMC were generated from the far-UV images. Individual far-UV brightnesses were determined, and corrected for interstellar extinction, for 122 Lucke-Hodge associations and 157 Henize nebulas. Over 130 other objects, of which 20 were identified as galactic foreground stars, were also measured. The ratio of UV flux to hydrogen Balmer-alpha (H-alpha) intensity, denoted hydrogen index, was determined for 90 of the Henize nebulas. The Atlas listing, which lists the individual far-UV flux measurements and hydrogen index determinations, is also available on a seven-track magnetic tape. (Author)
