ROS400GCLS - ROSAT PSPC 400 Square Degree Galaxy Cluster Catalog
This Browse table contains the main cluster catalog (Table 4 of the reference paper) which comprises 242 serendipitously detected clusters of galaxies. It does not include 24 clusters within a redshift of 0.01 of the redshift of the target of the ROSAT observation (given in Table 5 of the reference paper), as these latter are not entirely serendipitous, 5 noncluster extended sources (given in Table 6 of the reference paper), nor 16 likely false X-ray detections (given in Table 7 of the reference paper).
The 400 square degrees ROSAT PSPC galaxy cluster survey: Catalog and statistical calibration Burenin R.A., Vikhlinin A., Hornstrup A., Ebeling H., Quintana H., Mescheryakov A. <Astrophys. J. Suppl. 172, 561 (2007)> =2007ApJS..172..561B
A running X-ray source number in order of increasing J2000 Right Ascension.
The name of the X-ray source using the naming convention recommended by the CDS Dictionary of Nomenclature of Celestial Objects for objects from Table 4 of the reference paper, viz. '[BVH2007] NNN', in which BVH2007 refers to Burenin, Vikhlinin, Hornstrup 2007, and NNN is the X-ray source number.
The Right Ascension of the X-ray source centroid, in the selected equinox. This was given in J2000.0 coordinates to a precision of 0.1 seconds of time in the original reference. The typical positional uncertainty is 10 - 30 arcseconds.
The Declination of the X-ray source centroid, in the selected equinox. This was given in J2000.0 coordinates to a precision of 1 arcsecond in the original reference. The typical positional uncertainty is 10 - 30 arcseconds.
The Galactic Longitude of the X-ray source centroid.
The Galactic Latitude of the X-ray source centroid.
The total unabsorbed X-ray flux in the 0.5 - 2.0 keV band, in erg/s/cm^2.
The uncertainty in the total unabsorbed X-ray flux in the 0.5 - 2.0 keV band, in erg/s/cm^2.
The redshift of the cluster.
The reference code for the source of the cluster redshift. If the redshift reference code is blank, the source for the redshift is the authors' own measurement (A. Hornstrup 2007, in preparation). The key to the reference codes is as follows:
1 = Vikhlinin et al. (1998a), Mullis et al. (2003); 2 = Cappi et al. (1998); 3 = Struble & Rood (1999); 4 = Mahdavi & Geller (2004); 5 = Rines et al. (2003); 6 = Simien & Prugniel (2000); 7 = Huchra et al..(1999); 8 = Perlman et al. (2002); 9 = Romer et al. (2000); 10 = Nesci & Altamore (1990); 11 = Abazajian et al. (2005); 12 = da Costa et al. (1998); 13 = Abell et al. (1989); 14 = de Vaucouleurs et al. (1991); 15 = Colless et al. (2001); 16 = Batuski et al. (1999); 17 = Stocke et al. (1991); 18 = Wegner et al. (2003); 19 = Mason et al. (2000); 20 = Peterson (1978); 21 = Molthagen et al. (1997); 22 = Bohringer et al. (2000); 23 = Miller et al. (2002); 24 = Appenzeller et al. (1998); 25 = Smith et al. (2000); 26 = Denicolo et al. (2005); 27 = Binggeli et al. (1985); 28 = Ebeling et al. (2001b); 29 = Burke et al. (2003); 30 = Bernardi et al. (2002); 31 = Binggeli et al. (1993); 32 = Falco et al. (1999); 33 = Hewitt & Burbidge (1991); 34 = Keel (1996); 35 = Huchra et al. (1990); 36 = Wegner et al. (1999); 37 = Miller et al. (2004); 38 = Owen et al. (1995); 39 = Kochanek et al. (2001); 40 = Gioia et al. (2003); 41 = da Costa et al. (1991); 42 Katgert et al. (1998).
The total X-ray luminosity in the 0.5 - 2.0 keV band, in erg/s. The X-ray luminosity was computed as described in Appendix B of the reference paper.
This field contains some additional notes on the optical identifications of the clusters of galaxies, where VMF refers to a. 160d cluster (Vikhlinin et al. 1998a; Mullis et al. 2003), A to an Abell cluster (Abell et al. 1989), and MS to the EMSS (Stocke et al. 1991). A note of 'Section 4.1' means that there is a discussion of the cluster in that section of the reference paper
