Description of the basic observation parameters

The designation of the source, as recognized by SIMBAD. If available, the HD designation is selected by default. Other designations, such as BD, HIP, GJ, GSC, 2MASS and USNO catalog entries, or proper names, Variable names, Bayer letters and Flamsteed numbers may also be accepted when querying.

The equatorial coordinates of the source (HHMMSS±DDMMSS), referred to equinox 2000, epoch 2000. These coordinates are accompanied by proper motions used to compute accurate barycentric corrections.

This is a link to the relevant SIMBAD query page for this source.

This is a link to any observations of the source which may be present in the ELODIE archive.

A number used to uniquely identify an entry in the database. This internal sequence number is actually the SOPHIE sequence number multiplied by 10. In case of n duplicates (due to disk problems on pcsophie) we add n to the SOPHIE sequence number for each occurrence.

The calendar date corresponding to the beginning of the night (UT) on which this particular spectrum was obtained.

The modified Julian date (JD - 2400000.5) when observations started is rounded to the nearest integer.
The rounding, intended to hide the information during the one-year or five-year period when the full access is reserved to the observer, is applied to all the observations, but the precise value can be found in the FITS header whenever the data are fully public. This field can be used to select observations in a time period, if date is considered less convenient.

bjd The barycentric julian date (julian date corrected to the barycenter of the solar system) at the middle of the exposure is provided for the fully public observations. For the observations with temporary limited access, the field is NULL. The value of BJD can be found in the FITS header, with full precision for the public observations, and truncated to a day for the others.

seql seql this parameter is NULL when data are not public.
