Third Cambridge Catalogue of Radio Sources

(3C)
(1959 catalog of northern hemisphere 159MHz sources)

The Third Cambridge Catalog of Radio Sources (3C), published in 1959, includes northern hemisphere (and some southern hemisphere) radio sources detected by the Cambridge Interferometer radio telescope at 159MHz. Updates 3CR and 3CRR, the latter using 178MHz, preserve the "3C" numbering and are commonly cited with the "3C" designation.
