Astronomical Catalog

(Catalog, Catalogue)
(lists of observed astronomical bodies and their characteristics)

Astronomical Catalogs, i.e., lists of observed phenomena (stars, galaxies, Quasars, etc.) are assembled and enlarged for various purposes. Examples:

Recent and current Surveys often produce their own catalogs, often using a Survey-based Designator for its identifiers.

Mock Catalogs have been produced: artificial catalogs of realistic-but-nonexistent objects, to assist with modeling.
