Spectral type is made of 3 parts:
  • the spectral type, which is made of a temperature class, eventually a luminosity class (roman number) and/or spectral peculiarities;
  • a quality letter: A=best quality->E=worst quality, ~ =unknown quality
  • bibcode : bibcode of the spectral type reference
Spectral type:
O8III C 2013MNRAS.433..138R
Syntax of fluxes (or magnitudes) is : "filter-name flux-value [error] quality MultVarFlags bibcode"
  • filter-name : U, B, V, R, I, J, H, K, u, g, r, i, z
  • flux-value : value of flux or magnitude
  • [error] : error value
  • quality : flag of quality of the flux value ( A=best quality -> E=worst quality, ~ =unknown quality)
  • MultVarFlags : Mult is zero or one char (J) for joined photometry ; Var can be zero or two chars (V[0-4])
  • bibcode : bibcode of the flux reference

within radius arcsec The VizieR photometry tool allows for easy visualization of photometry points extracted around the Simbad position from photometry-enabled catalogues in VizieR.
The search radius has to be specified by the user. It is currently limited to a maximum of 30 arcsec. It depends mostly on the precision or quality of the coordinates (SIMBAD and VizieR catalogs), the resolution of the images from which the sources were extracted, source extent, and source crowding.
Suggestions are: crowded field: 0.5 to 1.5 arcsec, 3 arcsec otherwise; uncertain coordinates (SIMBAD quality E or coordinates without reference): 5 to 30 arsec (risky!).

The link on the acronym of the identifiers give access to the information for this acronym in the dictionary of nomenclature.
