Parameters

catalog
Type: System..::..String
Three-character catalog identifier (e.g. HIP = Hipparcos, FK5 = FK5). This identifier also specifies the reference system and units of the data; i.e. they are the same as the specified catalog.
star_name
Type: System..::..String
Object name (50 characters maximum).
star_num
Type: System..::..Int32
Object number in the catalog.
ra
Type: System..::..Double
Right ascension of the object.
dec
Type: System..::..Double
Declination of the object.
pm_ra
Type: System..::..Double
Proper motion in right ascension.
pm_dec
Type: System..::..Double
Proper motion in declination.
parallax
Type: System..::..Double
Parallax.
rad_vel
Type: System..::..Double
Radial velocity.
star
Type: ASCOM.Astrometry..::..CatEntry%
OUT: Structure containing the input data
