REFNEBULAE - Merged Catalog of Reflection Nebulae
The HEASARC has endeavored to render all identifications of the nebulae in the various catalogs according to the styles recommended by the Dictionary of Nomenclature of Celestial Objects.
Merged catalogue of reflection nebulae. Magakian T.Yu. <Astron. Astrophys. 399, 141 (2003)> =2003A&A...399..141M
A sequential identification number for each source in the catalog in order of increasing J2000.0 Right Ascension.
The Dictionary of Nomenclature of Celestial Objects-recommended source designation using the '[M2003]' prefix for Magakian (2003) and the J2000.0 equatorial source coordinates.
The Right Ascension of the reflection nebula in the selected equinox. This was given in J2000.0 equatorial coordinates to a precision of 1 second of time in the original table.
The Declination of the reflection nebula in the selected equinox. This was given in J2000.0 equatorial coordinates to a precision of 1 arcsecond in the original table.
The Galactic Longitude of the reflection nebula.
The Galactic Latitude of the reflection nebula.

Other common designations for the reflection nebula and/or related stars within it, including classical names and designations by constellations, and names from the catalogs of variable and suspected variable stars. The bibcodes of the other catalogs and lists corresponding to the following abbreviations are as follows:

The numerical part of the name of the star related to the reflection nebula in one of the Durchmusterungs, i.e., the BD, CD or CPD Catalogs. Thus, '+17o3986' refers to the star 'BD +17 3986'. If the illuminating star can be definitely identified, but it was too faint to be included in the DM, its existence is denoted by 'F' or 'F?'. Many such stars are included in deeper surveys, such as the SAO, PPM or GSC Catalogs.
The numerical part of the name of the star related to the reflection nebula in the HD Catalog, e.g., 100099 for HD 100099. If the illuminating star can be definitely identified, but it was too faint to be included in the HD Catalog, its existence is denoted by 'F' or 'F?'. Many such stars are included in deeper surveys, such as the SAO, PPM or GSC Catalogs.
The cross-identification with the IRAS Point Source or Faint Source Catalogs, IRAS PSC (CDS Cat. <II/125>) or IRAS FSC (CDS Cat. <II/156>) made by the authors. In most cases, but not always, the infrared sources coinicide with the illuminating stars.
The classification of the reflection nebula, discussed in more detail in section 2 of the reference paper, and coded as follows:
N - reflection nebula; C+E - nebula with combined spectrum (emission+reflection); CN - cometary nebula (by morphology and/or other features); HH - Herbig-Haro object or jet; PN? - possible planetary nebula; Gal? - possible galaxy; ? - denotes uncertain classification.
