Table information for 'tenpc.main'


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

Resource Description: A catalogue of 541 nearby (within 10pc of the sun) stars, brown dwarfs, and confirmed exoplanets in 336 systems, as well 21 candidates, compiled from SIMBAD and several other sources. Where available, astrometry and photometry from Gaia eDR3 has been inserted.

Citing this table

This table has an associated publication. If you use data from it, it may be appropriate to reference Astron. Astrophys., submitted either in addition to or instead of the service reference.

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

  title={The 10 parsec sample in the Gaia era},
  author={Reylé, C. and Jardine, K. and Fouqué, P. and Caballero, J. A. and Smart, R. L. and Sozzetti, A.},
  howpublished={{VO} resource provided by the {GAVO} Data Center}

Note g

g_code is:

2:retrieved from Gaia DR2
3:retrieved from Gaia eDR3
10:Estimated from spectral type via the calibration of absolute magnitude versus spectral type computed within GCNS.
20:Estimated from M_G=25 (i.e., a lower limit). This is used for late T and Y brown drawfs too faint for Gaia.
