The XPM Catalog  Absolute proper motions of 280 million stars distributed all over the sky without gaps in the magnitude range 10m < V <20m on the basis of combined data from 2MASS and USNO-A2.0 catalogues.
MAO NASU Plate Archive   Digital archive of MAO NAS of Ukraine (GPA) comprises data of about 26 thousands of direct photographic plates, obtained with 14 instruments in 9 observational sites, and more than 2000 digital images of different resolution available via GPA search pages.
Mykolaiv AO Plate Archive   Digital archive of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) includes astronomical data obtained during observations with photo plates and CCD frames. The digitization of the archive is near its completion. Digitized images are available via a web browser and Aladin.
AO LNU Plate Archive   Astronomical Observatory of Lviv National University (AO LNU) is the owner of valuable archive that stores approximately 8 000 of photographic plates from 1939, including nearly 6 000 direct images of the northern sky. The archive is partly digitized and images are available via the joint search pages of AO LNU and MAO NASU.
IRA UTR-2 catalogue of RS   The very-low frequency sky survey of discrete sources has been obtained in the Institute of Radio Astronomy of the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences (Kharkov, Ukraine) with the UTR-2 radio telescope at a number of the lowest frequencies used in contemporary radio astronomy within the range from 10 to 25 MHz.
Mykolaiv AO stellar catalogues   27 astrometric stellar catalogues of Mykolaiv Aastronomical Observatory (MykAO) in VOTable format are available for downloading
AO KNU Historic Plate Archive   AO KNU glass collection contains about 20 thousand photographic plates. Historical part of the archive was received during 1898-1946 and now is being digitized.

VOPlot v1.8 Beta 
VOPlot v1.8Beta includes many enhancements and bug fixes. To name a few v1.8Beta supports multi-grid plots for 2D Scatter-Plot which allows the user to have multiple plots having grid size from 1x1 to 3x3 in a single window. Paginated view is added to see data in tabular format which allows user to navigate systematically. Provision to label Lat/Long lines is also added. Users can now plot a cumulative histogram for all histogram types. VOPlot 1.8Beta shows the metadata of a FITS file instantaneously while the actual loading happens in background. VOPlot v1.8Beta also provides better handling of "faulty data" while parsing an ASCII file.

 Deitch Alexander Nikolaevich 

General data:

31.12.1899 - 22.11.1986

Place of birth: Reni city, Kherson province, Russian Empire

Studied in: Saratov State University (N. G. Chernyshevsky Saratov National Research State University) (1919); Leningrad State University (since 1991 St. Petersburg State University) (1923-1924);

Key interests: stellar dynamics, minor bodies of the Solar System, AGNs, space missions, solar corona, reference systems. PhD Thesis: The degree of Candidate of Sciences was awarded for a set of works (1935 );


He was born on December 31, 1899 in the Reni city of Kherson province of the Russian Empire (now - Odessa region of Ukraine).

After graduating from high school, he entered the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of Saratov State University (now M. G. Chernyshevsky Saratov National Research State University).

In May 1919 he was mobilized to the Red Army.

Since 1920 he worked as a laboratory assistant at the Military Economic Academy of the Red Army in Petrograd city and taught mathematics in the preparatory department. In 1923 he was demobilized.

In 1924 he graduated from Leningrad State University.

During 1923-1986 he worked at the Pulkovo Observatory.

In 1935 he was awarded the degree of Candidate of Sciences for a set of works.

In particular, together with E. Ya. Perepelkin in 1931-1932 he performed measurements and processing of images of selected sites of Captain in order to study the own motions of stars.

In 1941, he defended his doctoral dissertation based on a study of 18,000 of his own motions of stars in the fields of Captain.

Since 1936 he led a group of photographic astrometry.

During 1945-1973 he worked as the head of the department of photographic astrometry and stellar astronomy.

During the Great Patriotic War since September 1941 to February 1942, which was part of World War II, he served as director of the observatory. Through the efforts of A. N. Deich and his staff, many tools, books of the library fund and materials of the glass library were saved.

On November 22, 1986, the professor died.

The main scientific works of A. N. Deich belongs to photographic astrometry and stellar astronomy. He also participated in expeditions to observe total solar eclipses in 1927, 1936, 1945 and in two expeditions to determine the longitudes of Sverdlovsk city, Tbilisi city in 1930 and Arkhangelsk city in 1932. In 1929 he discovered the asteroid 1148 Rarahu. Participated in the study of unique material for observing the solar corona on June 19, 1936. In the late 1950's he developed a method for determining the coordinates of an artificial satellite of the Earth. Contributed by A. N. Deich in the creation of an inertial coordinate system was the implementation of the idea of ​​B. P. Gerasimovich and N. I. Dniprovsky on determining the absolute proper motions of stars with reference to galaxies. The program, set out in a report to the VIII Congress of the International Astronomical Union in Rome in 1952, was adopted as international. For many years, A. N. Deitch supervised this work, which was carried out at 4 Soviet and 7 foreign observatories.

In the early 1970s, he organized work to engage the observations of quasars to solve problems to determine the absolute natural motions of stars. His work "Core of Galaxies", published in 1966, also allowed us to draw preliminary conclusions about the physical nature of these objects. He studied the long-term lava of Pulkov's observations of the 61st Swan star, put forward a hypothesis about its possible satellites of substellar nature with periods of 6 and 12 years. (News MAO USSR 1951, 1957; PAGE 1978).

Author of more than 120 scientific papers, one of the authors of the famous Pulkovo "Course of Astrophysics and Star Astronomy". During 1936-1981 he taught the courses "Photographic Astrometry", "Double Stars" and "Approximate Calculations" at Leningrad University. From 1932 he taught a course in naval astronomy at the M. V. Frunze Naval Academy for several years.

For two terms he was President of the №24 Commission on Photographic Astrometry of the International Astronomical Union during 1961-1966.

The small planet was discovered by L.I. Chernikh in 1968 at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory, named in 1792 Reni, in honor of the birthplace of A. N. Deycha.
