TEXT NO. 2: The Atlas and Catalogue of Infrared Sources in the Magellanic Clouds provides a complete list of infrared sources detected by the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) in the Magellanic Clouds, as well as a set of detailed maps, completely covering the Clouds in all four wavelength bands. The inclusion of nearly 100 maps with perpendicular scan directions allows determination of source extent and structure with the maximum available resolution. Identification of catalogue sources on the maps is facilitated by 15 transparent overlays, containing coordinate grids, source positions, and the positions of field stars. In addition, cross-identification tables provide easy reference of optical objects to infrared sources. The Atlas and Catalogue of Infrared Sources in the Magellanic Clouds is an essential tool for all researchers dealing with these companions of the Galaxy.
Responsibility: by P.B.W. Schwering and F.P. Israel.
