Name
       sua2 - Find USNO-A2.0 Catalog stars in a square on the sky

Synopsis
       sua2 [options] ra dec system

Description
       suac finds all of the U.S. Naval Observatory A2.0 Catalog objects in a specified region of the sky and lists their sky positions and magni-
       tudes in order of brightness. Output is to standard out, unless the -w flag is set, in which case it goes to objectname.uac or  search.uac.
       It is a link to scat.

Options
       -a  list single closest catalog source -b Output B1950 (FK4) coordinates -d Sort by distance from center instead of flux -e Output ecliptic
       coordinates -f Output search center for other programs -g Output galactic coordinates -h Print heading, else do not -i Print catalog object
       name,  not  catalog  number (=ua2_region_number) -j Output J2000 (FK5) coordinates -l Print center and closest star on one line -m [<bright
       magnitude>] <faint magnitude> Limiting catalog magnitude(s) (default none, bright -2 if only faint is given) -n <num> Number  of  brightest
       stars  to  print  -o  <name>  Object  name used to name output file -p Sort by distance from search center instead of brightness -q <years>
       Equinox of output positions in years -r <radius> Search box half-width in arcsec or dd:mm:ss If negative, this is a radius; if two numbers,
       first  is  in  right ascension, second is in declination. (default is 10, that is a 20x20 arcsec box) -s Sort by right ascension instead of
       flux -t Tab table output -u <num> Print X Y instead of number in front of non-tab entry	-v  Verbose  listing  of  processing  intermediate
       results -w Write tab table output file imagename.uac -y Epoch of output positions in years

imcat(1)						      General Commands Manual							  imcat(1)

Name
       imcat - List catalog stars in FITS and IRAF image files

Synopsis
       imcat [options] FITS or IRAF file(s)

Description
       Search given catalog withing area described by the world coordinate system in an image header.  May be called as imuac to search the USNO A
       1.0 catalog, imusac to search the USNO SA 1.0 catalog, or imgsc to search the HST Guide Star Catalog.

Options
       -b [<RA> <Dec>]
	      Output in B1950, optional new image center in B1950 (FK4) RA and Dec to replace that in image header

       -c <name>
	      Reference catalog (gsc(=HST GSC), ua2(=USNO-A2.0), TMC(=2MASS Point Source Catalog), gsc2(=GSC  II),  ub1(=USNO-B1.0),  local  file,
	      etc.)

       -d     Output RA,Dec positions in fractional degrees

       -e     Output in ecliptic longitude and latitude

       -g     Output in galactic longitude and latitude

       -h     Print heading, else do not

       -i     Print name instead of number in region file

       -j [<RA> <Dec>]
	      Output in J2000, optional new image center in J2000 (FK5) RA and Dec to replace that in image header

       -k <keyword>
	      Add this keyword to output from tab table search

       -m [<bright magnitude>] <faint magnitude>
	      Limiting catalog magnitude(s) (default none, bright -2 if only faint is given)

       -n <num>
	      Number of brightest stars to print

       -o <type>
	      Set HST Guide Star object class to print (0=stars, 3=nonstars, -1=all, -2=band)

       -p <scale>
	      Initial plate scale in arcsec per pixel (default from file)

       -q <c|d|o|s|x|v|+>
	      Write  SAOimage  region file with this shape, o=circle, s=square, d=diamond, +=cross, and x=X, with the radius scaled with magnitude
	      unless specified with a -r command line entry. v will cause stellar Guide Stars to plot with a + and nonstellar Guide Stars to  plot
	      with  an	x.  If character is is preceded by p, the size specified by the -r command is assumed to be in pixels, not arcseconds. A p
	      alone specifies a circle in pixels.

       -r <radius>
	      Write SAOimage region file with shapes (default CIRCLE) of this radius in arcseconds. SAOimage can then read this  file,	with  will
	      have  positions  and  radii  in  pixels  and  plot it over an image. If the radius is specified as zero, the output radii will scale
	      between 5 and dim/100 over the range of magnitudes of sources found in the image area. If the -q option is specified with a  'p'	in
	      it, this number is assumed to be in pixels instead of arcseconds.

       -s d|m|n|p|r|x|y
	      Sort by (d)eclination, (m)agnitude, (n)o sort, (p)distance from center, (r)ight ascension, image (x) or (y).

       -t     Tab table to standard output as well as file

       -u num USNO catalog single plate number to accept

       -v     Verbose listing of processing intermediate results

       -w     Write tab table output file imagename.cat

       -x x y X and Y coordinates of reference pixel (default is CRPIXn or center of image)

       -y epoch
	      Epoch of image for proper motions

       -z     Use AIPS classic projections instead of WCSLIB; use CD matrix or CDELT instead of polynomial solution.
