JSDC - a new catalog of computed stellar angular diameters 
We are pleased to make the announcement that a new all-sky catalogue of computed stellar angular diameters (JSDC) is now available online on the Centre de Donnees astronomiques de Strasbourg (CDS) server : http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/cgi-bin/Vizi ... rce=II/300

The present catalogue contains stellar angular diameter for about 38500 bright stars (Vmag < 12.2, Kmag <11.5) obtained from an automated SearchCal results aggregation on the whole sky. For each star are given, the value of the limb-darkened angular diameter computed using a surface brightness method as well as the values of the uniform disk angular diameters estimated for the photometric bands B, V, R, I, J, H and K.

Iper: a simple tool to fit OIFITs data with a uniform disk 
During the last IAU conference in August 2009, the Optical and
Infrared Interferometry Commission (C54) raised a few questions
(get the whole story on http://olbin.jpl.nasa.gov/iau/2009/index.html).

One of them was :
"Is there a command line tool to throw at an OIFITS file to do a
simple uniform disk fit?"

Well, now, there is. Just "call Iper"

This simple tool allows you to rapidly see if your set of squared
visibilities is fitted or not by a uniform disk.

Planned SearchCal Outage on March 15 2010 
As posted here, Vizier will be unaccessible sometime between 8:00 and 12:00UT on Monday, March. 15 2010.
In consequence, SearchCal will be unavailable as well during this period, as it relies on CDS catalogs to retrieve calibrators data.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
