  • Tycho Brahe completed his catalogue with the positions and magnitudes of 1004 fixed stars in 1598. This catalogue circulated in manuscript form. Brahe edited a shorter version with 777 stars, printed in 1602, and Kepler edited the full catalogue of 1004 stars, printed in 1627. We provide machine-readable versions of the three versions of the catalogue, describe the differences between them and briefly discuss their accuracy on the basis of comparison with modern data from the Hipparcos… CONTINUE READING

    Rawlins makes a large correction to its position and identifies it with HIP 19949 (V = 5.2). K 297–300 are the four additional stars (indicated blue) top left in Fig. C.15
    • K 297 and K 300 are close to HIP

    No good counterparts are found for K 67-75 even if the search is extended down to V=6.5
    • Compare with Fig. C.2

    No good counterparts are found for K 67−75 even if the search is extended down to V = 6.5. Rawlins (1993) notes that Brahe’s positions in this area are in “extreme confusion

    Notes on individual identifications In this Section reference to Dreyer is short for Dreyer (1916) and reference to Rawlins for Rawlins (1993). K 10-13 lie in a straight line
