HELP: CMT planetary catalogue fields
- This catalogue contains all published data from the Carlsberg
Meridian Telescope planetary observations.
- In the tables below you'll find a description of the individual keywords
which you may encounter. The first column is a list of the keyword headings.
In the second column a 'Q' means that the keyword appears on the query form
and an 'I' means that that particular keyword is indexed in the archive.
Searching on at least one indexed keyword will always lead to a faster
result. The third column describes the value of each keyword.
