The EUVE all-sky survey detected 734
(Bowyer et al. 1996). The EUVE source list has been
expanded by correlating EUVE all-sky survey detections from the Lexan
bandpass centered at 100 Å with ROSAT PSPC detections
Lampton et al. 1997 thus raising the number of EUVE sources to nearly 1000.
The telescopes that performed the all-sky survey continue to take
data at right angles to the Deep Survey/Specrtrometer instruments.
Observations taken this way has become known as the "Right Angle
Program". The first RAP catalog
McDonald et al. 1994
presented 114 sources, 99 of which were
new EUV detections. These detections were incorporated in Table 3 of the
Bowyer et al. 1996 paper.
The 2nd RAP catalog
Christian et al. 1999
presented 261 EUVE
detections, of which 169 were new detections. The 3rd RAP catalog
presented 63 new sources
(Christian 2002). These catalogs combine to
bring the total number of EUVE photometric detections (in the Lexan band)
to nearly 1200 and these sources are shown below in an all-sky plot in
The EUVE and ROSAT WFC surveys (Pye et al. 1995) have
shown the brightest EUV sources to be: hot white dwarfs, active and
nearby late-type stars, cataclysmic variables, and various types of
active galactic nuclei.
