Stat:is completely incorporated in SimbadNote:SEXSI is a collaboration between researchers at Caltech and Columbia University to obtain a large sample of Serendipitous Extragalactic X-ray Source Identifications by extracting complete, hard (2.0-10.0keV) X-ray source lists from high Galactic latitude X-ray source lists from high Galactic latitude Chandra Observatory fields, and then to obtain photometric and spectroscopic identifications. 2003ApJ...596..944H, Table 4: source catalog, Table 6: soft-band-only source catalog.
