Abstract (from CDS):

The Catalog and Atlas of Cataclysmic Variables (Edition 1: Downes & Shara; Edition 2: Downes, Webbink, & Shara) has been a valuable source of information for the cataclysmic variable community. However, the goal of having a central location for all objects is slowly being lost as each new edition is generated. There can also be a long time delay between new information becoming available on an object and its publication in the catalog. To eliminate these concerns, as well as to make the catalog more accessible, we have created a Web site which will contain a living'' edition of the catalog. We have also added orbital period information, as well as finding charts for novae, to the catalog.

Journal keyword(s): Atlases - Catalogs - cataclysmic variables

VizieR on-line data: <CDS Catalogue: V/123>

Status at CDS : All or part of tables of objects could be ingested in SIMBAD; there are some issues with cross-identifications or classifications.

CDS comments: Catalog: Objects with a format 'CCC N' are '[DWS97] CCC N' in SIMBAD. Objects with a format 'CCC' are not in SIMBAD with this format, look at cross-id. in other columns of the catalog (via http://icarus.stsci.edu/~downes/cvcat/). Position of GM Sgr is incorrect.
