STECHER Laboratory for Astronomy and Solar Physics, Code 680-NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD 20771 Received 1995 September 25; accepted 1995 November 17 ABSTRACT We present a photometric catalog of 2244 objects detected by the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope in the near-ultraviolet (NUV; 1650A < {lambda} < 2900 A) during the Astro Space Shuttle mission. Sources in the catalog are as faint as m_nuv_ ~ 18.8, or f_nuv_ ~ 1.1 x 10^16^ ergs s^-1^ cm^-2^ A^-1^, but the survey is not complete to this level. Optical catalogs were used to cross identify sources and derive NUV - V colors. A majority of the objects (88%) do indeed have proposed optical identifications from catalogs, and most are stars. Our purpose in creating the catalog is to form a database useful for identifying very blue objects and performing Galactic UV stellar population studies.
