1995ApJS...96..461B A CATALOG OF FAR-ULTRAVIOLET POINT SOURCES DETECTED WITH THE FAUST TELESCOPE ON ATLAS-1 STUART BOWYER, TIMOTHY P. SASSEEN, XIAOYI WU, AND MICHAEL LAMPTON Center for EUV Astrophysics, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 94720 Received 1993 September 27; accepted 1994 July 6 ABSTRACT We list the photometric measurements of point sources made by the Far Ultraviolet Space Telescope (FAUST) when it flew on the ATLAS-1 space shuttle mission. The list contains 4698 Galactic and extragalactic objects detected in 22 wide-field images of the sky. At the locations surveyed, this catalog reaches a limiting magnitude approximately a factor of 10 fainter than the previous UV all-sky survey, TD1. The catalog limit is approximately 1 x 10^-14^ ergs s^-1^ cm^2^ A, although it is not complete to this level. We list for each object the position, FUV flux, the error in flux, and where possible an identification from catalogs of nearby stars and galaxies. These catalogs include the Michigan HD (MHD) and HD, SAO, the HIPPARCOS Input Catalog, the Position and Proper Motion Catalog, the TD1 Catalog, the McCook and Sion Catalog of white dwarf stars, and the RC3 Catalog of Galaxies. We identify 2239 FAUST sources with objects in the stellar catalogs and 172 with galaxies in the RC3 catalog. We estimate the number of sources with incorrect identifications to be less than 2%.
