Information on Service 'Münster Flare Plates Web Service'

[Use this service from your browser]

Further access options are discussed below

From 1986 through 1991, the Astronomical Institute of Münster University performed a search for flare stars in several southern associations and open stellar clusters using the GPO telescope (d=40 cm, WFPDB identifier ESO040); the fields suveyed include Coalsack, M42, B228 Lup, the Chameleon T1 association, omicron Vel cluster, R CrA association, the Pipe nebula (B59 Oph), and the Sco-Oph association. This was done primarily through multiple exposures. The files published here are plate scans done in 2017. The obscore collection name for these files is Muenster Flare Survey.

VOTable Output Fields

The following fields are available in VOTable output. The verbosity level is a number intended to represent the relative importance of the field on a scale of 1 to 30. The services take a VERB argument. A field is included in the output if their verbosity level is less or equal VERB*10.
