A second catalog of orbiting astronomical observatory 2 filter photometry: ultraviolet photometry of 614 stars.


Abstract (from CDS):

Ultraviolet photometry from the Wisconsin Experiment Package on the Orbiting Astronomical Observatory 2 (OAO 2) is presented for 614 stars. Previously unpublished magnitudes from 12 filter bandpasses with wavelengths ranging from 1330 to 4250 Å have been placed on the white dwarf model atmosphere absolute flux scale. The fluxes were converted to magnitudes using V=0 for F(V)=3.46x10–9–2.s–1–1, or mλ=-2.5logFλ-21.15. This second catalog effectively doubles the amount of OAO 2 photometry available in the literature and includes many objects too bright to be observed with modern space observatories.
