This database table is based on information culled from the (near) real-time
RXTE All-Sky Monitor light curve data products. These data products are

The XTEASMQUICK database table is updated automatically, usually every three
hours or whenever new real-time ASM data products are delivered to the
HEASARC from the RXTE SOF.
The XTEASMQUICK table makes available quicklook results from the XTE All-Sky
Monitor for about 220 sources. The light curve (.lc) files give the total
measured intensity, and the color (.col) files give intensities in three
sub-energy bands (or "colors"). The light curve and color files are cumulative
for a period of one to two weeks. These data products are provided in FITS
The ASM source designation.
The Right Ascension of the source.
The Declination of the source.
The Galactic Longitude of the source.
The Galactic Latitude of the source.
The start time of the dwell of the observation.
The duration of the dwell, in seconds.
The number indicating which detector measured the flux values.
The counts per second measured by a single SSC detector during the dwell.
The error range of the measured flux value.
The reduced Chi squared of the fit.
The degrees of freedom of the fit.
Questions regarding the XTEASMQUICK database table can be addressed to the
HEASARC User Hotline.
