ACT Data Products - Equatorial Extragalactic Source Catalog
This is a catalog of extragalactic sources detected by the Atacama Cosmology Telescope at 148, 218, and 277 GHz along the celestial equator. Flux density calibration uncertainties for unresolved sources at 148, 218, and 277 GHz are 3%, 5%, and 15%, respectively. For full information see Gralla et al (2019), “Atacama Cosmology Telescope: Dusty star-forming galaxies and active galactic nuclei in the equatorial survey”.
The file act_equatorial_extragalactic_gralla_v1.txt is the catalog associated with the submission and initial arXiv version of this work. There may be an updated version with final publication. The file is a human/machine-readable fixed width ASCII table. The table can be read into Python using the astropy.table.Table object with the following command:
catalog = Table.read('act_equatorial_extragalactic_gralla_v1.txt', format='ascii.fixed_width').
