New catalogue of optically visible open clusters and candidates.


Abstract (from CDS):

We have compiled a new catalogue of open clusters in the Galaxy which updates the previous catalogues of Lynga (1987, Catalogue of Open Cluster data (5th Ed.)) and of Mermilliod (1995, in Information and On-Line Data in Astronomy, ed. D. Egret & M. A. Albrecht (Dordrecht: Kluwer), 127) (included in the WEBDA database). New objects and new data, in particular, data on kinematics (proper motions) that were not present in the old catalogues, have been included. Virtually all the clusters (1537) presently known were included, which represents an increment of about 347 objects relative to the Lynga (1987, Catalogue of Open Cluster data (5th Ed.)) catalogue. The catalogue is presented in a single table containing all the important data, which makes it easy to use. The catalogue can be accessed on line either at or as an electronic table which will be made available at the CDS.
