EBSC update: part 2

It's been a while coming, but I have posted part 2 of the Extended BSC. This contains stars in the following southerly constellations:
  1. Carina
  2. Musca
  3. Circinus
  4. Triangulum Australe
  5. Dorado
  6. Ara
  7. Horologium
  8. Reticulum
  9. Pictor
  10. Centaurus*
  11. Crux*
  12. Norma*
  13. Phoenix*
The 4 asterisked constellations have some final additions to confirm, so I may update these with some additional entries in the future. There will also be further work done on star designations, but in the meantime, I encourage you to use the supplied Gould Numbers or Near Star numbers if there is otherwise only a HD/SAO/HIP number.

See Extended BSC to download.


  1. N.B. ebsc2.xls updated on 12-Jan. Original version was missing some rows.

  2. N.B. Carina was included in part 1, so part 2 will include the other 12 stars listed, plus a couple more: potentially Eridanus, Telescopium & Grus.
