6.6 The XMM-Newton OM Source Catalogue

The OM team, under the auspices of the SSC, produces a catalogue of sources detected by the Optical Monitor. The OM catalogue derives from a reprocessing of publicly available OM data using a dedicated pipeline, which includes some additional data that is excluded from the routine XMM data-processing pipeline.

The fourth version of the XMM-Newton OM Serendipitous Ultraviolet Source Survey Catalogue (XMM-SUSS4) was released in December 2018. It includes public data up to July 2017, plus $\sim $30 public ToO and calibration observations up to the end of May 2018.

The catalogue embraces 9749 XMM-Newton observations and contains 8,176,156 detections of 5,503,765 sources, of which 1,035,453 have been observed more than once, thus allowing variability studies.

The XMM-SUSS4 catalogue can be accessed through the XSA search interface. Further, either the complete catalogue or a reduced version of it (the SLIM version) can be downloaded from the XSA.
