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.

There is a long history of star catalogs, which remain of interest, both in the study of the larger number of stars now observable with modern telescopes, but also for the purposes of navigation and time standards, (e.g., the USNO's NOMAD) and for aiming telescopes and recording the position of observed objects (e.g., the Guide Star Catalog).
