ACT Data Products - Extragalactic Southern Sources Catalog
This is a catalog of extragalactic sources detected by the Atacama Cosmology Telescope at 150, 220, and 280 GHz for the 2008-2010 seasons along the southern surveys. Flux uncertainties for unresolved sources at 150, 220 and 280 GHz are roughly 3% 5% and 9%, respectively. For full information see Vargas et al. (2023), "Atacama Cosmology Telescope: Extragalactic Point Sources in the Southern Surveys at 150, 220 and 280 GHz observed between 2008-2010"
The act_southern_sources_v1_0.fits file is the catalog associated with the initial arXiv version of this work. There may be an updated version with final publication. The file is a Flexible Image Transport System (FITS) table. To inspect and manipulate the table, we recommend TOPCAT. To read the table into Python, use the astropy.io.fits object with the following commands:
>>>from astropy.table import Table
