The Million Optical—Radio/X-ray Associations (MORX) Catalogue

  • Eric W. Flesch (a1)

This automated catalogue combines all the largest published optical, radio, and X-ray sky catalogues to find probable radio/X-ray associations to optical objects, plus double radio lobes, using uniform processing against all input data. The total count is 1 002 855 optical objects so presented. Each object is displayed with J2000 astrometry, optical and radio/X-ray identifiers, red and blue photometry, and calculated probabilities and optical field solutions of the associations. This is the third and final edition of this method.
