OSO8 B&C Detector Lightcurves
Nome of the Object
The Right Ascension of the pointing.
The Declination of the pointing.
The galactic longitude of the pointing.
The galactic latitude of the pointing.
The order number of the data set lightcurve.
The order number assigned to the lightcurve a known bright
x-ray source. A brighter source in the field of view at
observation time may be the actual source for the lightcurve.
The order number assigned to the lightcurve of the brightest
known x-ray source in the field of view at the time of observation
based on past activity from the sources in the field.
The name that a particular x-ray source may be more commonly
The letter identifier for the on board detector used for the
The 'exposure' parameter (given in seconds) corresponds to the
effective exposure on source.
The mean (or average) count rate determined for a particular
The error associated with the mean count rate.
File start time given as (DD/MM/YY HH:MM:SS).
File start time given as SHF (for browse) or MJD for W3browse
File stop time given as (DD/MM/YY HH:MM:SS).
File stop time given as SHF (for browse) or MJD for W3browse
The name given to the FITS file which contains some of the
information used for this table.
A crude quality flag was assigned to each lightcurve to flag
obvious problems. These flags are preliminary and do not account for all the
potential problems. (10 = good, 5 and 4 acceptable).
Flux of the source.
Browse classification, derived from the spectral type parameter, if
one is available.
