Cant find Supernova Catalogue with distance moduli, galactic coordinates, redshift?

  1. Jul 31, 2012 #1
    I need a list of type Ia supernova with redshifts, Distance Modulus, Distance modulus error, and position in galactic coordinates, but I havn't been able to find one that has all of that information (I have found several with some of the information, but not all of it). Does anyone know where I can find a supernova catalog with all of this?

    EDIT: I already looked here (http://supernova.lbl.gov/), which had the redshift and distance modulus data but not position data, and here (http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/W3Browse/all/asiagosn.html), which had the opposite. I tried merging the list but it seems as though the reported supernova names are slightly different (or I'm just unable of merging them properly).

    Thanks!

    You might try SIMBAD or NED but I'm not sure if they will have exactly what you need.

    I finally found the information I was looking for here:

    http://vizier.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/VizieR

    This is by far the most comprehensive supernova catalog I have ever seen, by the way.

    Yes, Vizier is always a good place for astronomical catalogs. Catalog J/ApJ/716/712, among others, is probably what you are seeking.
