Table information for 'mwsc.stars'


Table Description: Data on cluster stars.

This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: MWSC presents a list of 3006 Milky Way Stellar Clusters (MWSC), found in the 2MAst (2MASS with Astrometry) catalogue. The target list was compiled on the basis of present-day lists of open, globular and candidate clusters. For confirmed clusters we determined a homogeneous set of astrophysical parameters such as membership, angular radii of the main morphological parts, mean cluster proper motions, distances, reddenings, ages, tidal parameters, and sometimes radial velocities.

Citing this table

This table has an associated publication. If you use data from it, it may be appropriate to reference 2013A&A...558A..53K (ADS BibTeX entry for the publication) either in addition to or instead of the service reference.

To cite the table as such, we suggest the following BibTeX entry:

  title={Global Survey of Star Clusters in the Milky Way},
  author={Kharchenko, N.V. and Piskunov, A.E. and Roeser, S. and Schilbach, E. and Scholz, R.-D.},
