BDASP catalogue (ravedr6.dr6_bdasp)

The table has 494657 rows, 20 columns.


dr6_basp is a table of stellar atmospheric parameters as derived by pipeline BDASP. BDASP also provides an improved distance estimate and extinction measure combining Gaia, spectroscopic and photometric data, as well as estimates for the mass and the age of therespective star based on a Bayesian isochrone comparison.
