Skygroup_ID
An integer value from 1 to 84 describing the module/channel where the target falls. It's equivalent to the channel number during season 2. The sky group is an integer that groups stars together on the sky depending on which channel they fall on (or near) during season 2. Due to slight asymmetries in the CCD array layout, positions are not perfectly maintainted upon seasonal rotation of the spacecraft. Therefore, there are objects that fall off silicon during season 2 but are on silicon in subsequent seasons. This is especially problematic for Module 13 due to the center gap. Such stars are assigned the sky group corresponding to the other stars that fall on the same channel during other seasons.
range: 1 - 84

A magnitude computed according to a hierarchical scheme and depends on what pre-existing catalog source is available, SCP, Tycho 2, or photographic photometry, in order of preferred selection.
