LMCXRAY - LMC X-Ray Discrete Sources
The name is derived from the numeric designation given in the original reference and the prefix "LMC".
The Right Ascension in sexagesimal units.
The Declination in sexagesimal units.
The galactic longitude in degrees.
The galactic latitude in degrees.
Right Ascension in B1950 Equinox
Declination in B1950 Equinox
The count rate in counts/s in the IPC broad-band of 0.16 to 3.5 keV.
The count rate error in counts/sec.
The spectral hardness ratio, defined as [CR(hard)-CR(soft)]/CR(broad) where CR(hard) is the count rate in the 0.8 to 3.5 keV band, CR(soft) is the count rate in the 0.16 to 0.8 keV band, and CR(broad) is the count rate in the 0.16 to 3.5 keV band (i.e., the tabulated count rate).
The signal-to-noise ratio.
A source-class identifier code:
1 = supernova remnant 2 = LMC binary system 3 = OB Association, H II filament, etc. 4 = no identification 5 = foreground galactic star 6 = background AGN
An alternate designation for sources that were tabulated in the Long, Helfand, and Grabelsky (1981, ApJ, 248, 925) list of LMC X-ray sources.
A flag to indicate whether the source is compact, i.e., less than about 2.5' in diameter ('Y'), or of large angular diameter, i.e., of several arc minutes in diameter ('N').
Various comments and annotations concerning the X-ray properties and/or optical and radio identifications of the sources. Unless otherwise noted as "(LMC)", all stellar type designations (e.g., G2 V) refer to foreground galactic stars. "HRI" implies a detection with the Einstein High Resolution Imager, while "v" implies multiple IPC or IPC + HRI pointings suggesting the source is variable.
BROWSE classification type. The classification is based on the Source Type parameter.
