A catalog and atlas of cataclysmic variables-second edition.

DOWNES R., WEBBINK R.F. and SHARA M.M.

Abstract (from CDS):

We present a catalog of all 1020 known cataclysmic variables (CVs). This paper is a major update of the first edition of the catalog (Downes and Shara 1993, PASP, 105, 127), which contained coordinates (measured in the reference frame of the Hubble Space Telescope Guide Star Survey for the non-novae, and obtained from the literature for the novae), the variability type, the magnitude range, and references to both finding charts and spectroscopy. Also included in the catalog were finding charts for all dwarf novae, novalike variables, and objects classified only as cataclysmic variables known as of 1993; a similar catalog and atlas for novae has been published by Duerbeck (1978a). This updated edition includes 195 new objects (172 CVs and 23 non-CVs), revised identifications for 57 objects, and revised information (classification and spectral references) when available. We also now include plate identification information for the coordinate measurements, a reference to the classification, proper motion information where appropriate, and a table showing the CVs observed by space-based observatories. This second edition is inclusive of the first edition, although only new or updated charts are presented.
