Preliminary release of Red Supergiant catalog

Post #1by nussun » 02.08.2020, 19:00

Note: This is not the full version of the RSG catalog, and only includes the (mostly) finished files.

This is a Red Supergiant catalog I made for Celestia (derived from simbad and a little from wikipedia), it contains more than 1000 RSGs and some candidate RSGs. Currently there are a lot of files and it's quite a mess, I hope you'll enjoy nonetheless. I'm still working on the catalog and the full release will have RSG binaries, and a lot more missing RSGs not classified as RSGs in Simbad.

Just keep in mind these files may be subject to change in the future.

@nussun : In first I think "again a new catalog..." and in second: what does your addon give more for celestia ?

I explain : I use the excellent catalog of Gaia made by ajtribick and I took for example the star HD 9548.

The star is in both catalog, so what is the new ?

TY for your return.

jujuapapa, the catalog includes all red supergiants (not all because it's not finished yet, but that's the idea). Not all red supergiants are in the HIP and TYC catalogs - for example, Stephenson 2-18. The catalog also specifies radii for the stars, so HIP/TYC red supergiants are updated with more accurate radii.

There appear to be a number of stars that lack sourcing information. For a random example, HD 45829. Do you intend to include these for the final version?
