Re: [vsx-dis] Re: NOMAD "positions" - wondering about this wanderer
- OK, in that I have a wife, two daughters, three cats, three cars, a
house, a real job, etc., I haven't spent my life studying astrometric
catalogs. When NOMAD1 popped up on VizieR, I read the "read me" and
figured when it said "For each unique star the "best" astrometric and
photometric data are chosen from the source catalogs and merged into a
single dataset." that they meant it.
As long as the source of a piece of data is identified, I don't think
it matters a hoot where it's from, GSC or UCAC or USNO or whatever.
It's traceable back.
