I have only a couple in BeSS (I also have a few BeSS candidate spectra but those stars are not in BeSS yet)
They are also in the BAA database so you can pick them up there. Note that the V361 Per spectrum there is as I submitted it to BeSS but the BD+55521 is the version outputted by BeSS so has extra fields in the header which BeSS adds.
They are both very noisy but my excuse is they are high resolution spectra at mag 10 so a bit of a challenge.
The good news is that the file format is identical to the BAA Spectroscopy Database format. They in fact came up with the format, and we used it as it makes sense to have one format across the different databases.
You can download spectra from the BeSS website, and on the registration screen there is a tool you can use to check your file.
I’ve already downloaded BeSS spectra in an attempt to check my own obs of several BeSS stars but I wasn’t sure as to whether BeSS altered the format on submission. I’ve since read the BeSS published papers to check fits format etc. and I’m much happier.
I suppose I just wanted the comfort of confirmation from people I know who’ve done it.
I posted my first four Be spectra on this forum earlier & to the BAA database. Thanks for confirming cross compatibility Andy. That had escaped me. I think I’ll bite the bullet and use one to submit to BeSS and see what happens.
I’m keen to get the BAA its money’s worth! But hasn’t the weather been appalling!!!!
