epoch calVariability WSACalib Epoch of measurement float 8 Years   TIME_EPOCH
The Variability table contains statistics from the set of observations of each source. At present, the mean ra and dec and the error in two tangential directions are calculated. The "ra" direction is defined as tangential to both the radial direction and the cartesian z-axis and the "dec" direction is defined as both the radial direction and the "ra" direction. Since the current model is just the mean and standard deviation of the data, then the chi-squared of the fit=1. Data from good frames across all bands go into the astrometric model determination. This will include bands in non-synoptic filters: the one observation in these bands can help. In future releases a fit will be made to the rms data as a function of magnitude in each band, as has already happened for photometric data and a motion model that incorporates proper motion (and possibly parallax) will be used. The motion model is a parameter in the VarFrameSetInfo table.

This uses the FLAGS attribute in SE. The individual bit flags that this can be decomposed into are as follows:
Bit FlagMeaning
1The object has neighbours, bright enough and close enough to significantly bias the MAG_AUTO photometry or bad pixels (more than 10% of photometry affected).
2The object was originally blended with another
4At least one pixel is saturated (or very close to)
8The object is truncated (too close to an image boundary)
16Object's aperture data are incomplete or corrupted
32Object's isophotal data are imcomplete or corrupted. This is an old flag inherited from SE v1.0, and is kept for compatability reasons. It doesn't have any consequence for the extracted parameters.
64Memory overflow occurred during deblending
128Memory overflow occurred during extraction

expAstErr calVariability WSACalib Rms calculated from polynomial fit to minimum astrometric RMS as a function of magnitude real 4 arcsec -0.9999995e9  
The Variability table contains statistics from the set of observations of each source. At present, the mean ra and dec and the error in two tangential directions are calculated. The "ra" direction is defined as tangential to both the radial direction and the cartesian z-axis and the "dec" direction is defined as both the radial direction and the "ra" direction. Since the current model is just the mean and standard deviation of the data, then the chi-squared of the fit=1. Data from good frames across all bands go into the astrometric model determination. This will include bands in non-synoptic filters: the one observation in these bands can help. In future releases a fit will be made to the rms data as a function of magnitude in each band, as has already happened for photometric data and a motion model that incorporates proper motion (and possibly parallax) will be used. The motion model is a parameter in the VarFrameSetInfo table.

ext_flg allwise_sc2 WISE Extended source flag. This is an integer flag, the value of which indicates whether or not the morphology of a source is consistent with the WISE point spread function in any band, or whether the source is associated with or superimposed on a previously known extended object from the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog (XSC). CAUTION: WISE profile-fit (w?mpro) and standard aperture (w?mag) measurements are optimized for point sources and will systematically underestimate the true flux of resolved objects. If a source entry has ext_flg>0, you may wish to examine the large aperture photometry, or the elliptical aperture photometry which are measured using areas that are scaled from 2MASS XSC morphologies. int 4      
The values of the ext_flg indicate the following conditions:
  • 0 - The source shape is consistent with a point-source and the source is not associated with or superimposed on a 2MASS XSC source
  • 1 - The profile-fit photometry goodness-of-fit, w?rchi2, is >3.0 in one or more bands.
  • 2 - The source falls within the extrapolated isophotal footprint of a 2MASS XSC source.
  • 3 - The profile-fit photometry goodness-of-fit,w?rchi2, is >3.0 in one or more bands, and the source falls within the extrapolated isophotal footprint of a 2MASS XSC source.
  • 4 - The source position falls within 5" of a 2MASS XSC source.
  • 5 - The profile-fit photometry goodness-of-fit,w?rchi2, is >3.0 in one or more bands, and the source position falls within 5" of a 2MASS XSC source.
