   CWISEP (CatWISE Preliminary Catalog) Write:<<CWISEP JHHMMSS.ss+DDMMSS.s>> N: about 1000000000  (SIMBAD class: MidIR = Mid-IR Source (3 to 30 µm)) Note:CatWISE is a full-sky catalog consisting of sources selected at 3.4 and 4.6 microns from four years of WISE and NEOWISE survey data. CatWISE adapted AllWISE software to detect and measure the sources in unWISE images created from these data.
The catalog includes the measured motion of sources over the more than six years spanned by the data.
The catalogs and co-added images will be made available via the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive. Notes:https://iopscience.iop.org/2515-5172/2/3/140/ (2018RNAAS...2c.140M)

This is the initial, preliminary, release, hence the "P" suffix. We anticipate an updated release which will not use the P suffix for the acronym (ie CWISE).
