The Magellanic Catalogue of Stars - MACS

The Magellanic Catalogue of Stars (MACS) is based on scans of ESO Schmidt plates and contains about 244,000 stars covering large areas around the LMC and the SMC. The limiting magnitude is B<16.5m and the positional accuracy is better than 0.5" for 99% of the stars. The stars of this catalogue were screened interactively to ascertain that they are undisturbed by close neighbours.
