Name Type UCD Unit Description
rmse_id int
Unique identification number of photometric error estimate
process_id int Process identification number
scan_id int Scan identification number
exposure_id int Exposure identification number
plate_id int Plate identification number
archive_id int Archive identification number
annular_bin short meta.code Annular bin (1-9) on the scanned photographic plate (bin 1 is in the center, bin 9 is at the edge). Bin 0 refers to the whole image.
plate_mag float phot.mag
mag Uncalibrated magnitude (like mag_auto in the source table)
rmse float stat.error
mag Root-mean-square (RMS) error of the calibrated magnitude in the plate natural photometric system
mag_window float stat.value
mag Range of uncalibrated magnitudes in which the RMS error was estimated
num_stars int meta.number Number of stars that were used for the RMS error estimation
timestamp_insert timestamp time.creation Time[yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss] Timestamp of insert
timestamp_update timestamp time.creation Time[yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss] Timestamp of last update
