Search for Plates
in the Tautenburg Schmidt Catalogue
This coordinate search is performed in the plate
of the Tautenburg Schmidt telescope.
A description of the available data for each plate is given in
The plate size is 230mm × 230mm. In addition to the data for the listed plates,
you will find the x,y position of your object on the plate (positive x means
that the object is to the west of the plate centre, positive y means that the
object is to the north). Also plates with
x,y positions outside the nominal plate size are listed, because of the
uncertainties in the coordinates of the plate centres in the log-book.
In all cases with x or y larger than ±100mm one should inspect the plate!
Please enter coordinates (Equinox 2000):
It is necessary to use the given format including leading zeros
and the sign of Dec!
