Archives of Photographic PLates for Astronomical USE

Archives of DR3

Plots of the observation fields from the included archives.

Only included are fields that have also successfully been processed by astrometry.net.
The field of view is plotted to scale.

Hint:
With the query:

SELECT archive_id,count(archive_id)
FROM applause_dr3.plates
GROUP BY archive_id

you get the number of the plates per archiv, we processed in DR3.

With the query:

SELECT plate_id,archive_id, fov1, fov2, raj2000, dej2000
FROM applause_dr3.solution
WHERE NOT( raj2000 IS NULL or dej2000 IS NULL)
order by archive_id, plate_id

you get the field of view and center coordinates for the observation on the plate, ordered by archive.

If you want the data from only one archive (here Tartu archive):

SELECT plate_id, fov1, fov2, raj2000, dej2000
FROM applause_dr3.solution
WHERE NOT( raj2000 IS NULL or dej2000 IS NULL)
AND archive_id = 301
order by archive_id, plate_id

This gives you the data set we used for plotting the diagrams.
