Table information for 'gcns.resolvedss'


Table Description:

Resolved binary candidates in the GCNS catalogue as discussed in, “stellar multiplicity: resolved systems”. You probably want to join this table to gaia.edr3lite using source_id1 and/or source_id2.

This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description:

This is a clean and well characterised catalogue of objects within 100pc of the Sun from the Gaia early third data release. We characterise the catalogue using the full data release, and comparisons to other catalogues in literature and simulations. For all candidates (measured parallax < 8 mas), we calculate a distance probability function using Bayesian procedures and mock catalogues for the prediction of the priors. For each entry using a random forest classifier we attempt to remove sources with spurious astrometric solutions.

This results in 331312 objects that should contain at least 92% of stars within 100 pc at spectral type M9.

GCNS comes with several auxiliary tables, in particular lists of resolved stellar systems, of known neary stars not found in eDR3 and of candidates of Hyades and ComaBer cluster members.

Citing this table

This table has an associated publication. If you use data from it, it may be appropriate to reference either in addition to or instead of the service reference.
