User Specified Search Field

You may search on any column listed below. Where reasonable, the table lists the range of valid values or a set of sample values. A description of the column is also given. Note the column "label" is the name displayed on the search forms and in search results. The column "name" is the actual column name in the table and needs to be specified in GET requests.

From a MAST search form, simply select the column "label" in the forms pulldown menu and type in the qualification in the adjacent box. Note that if you specify constraints on the same column in more than one form element, they will all be included in the query and you may not get results you expect. In a HTTP GET request, specify the column "name" in the service request. (See the MAST Services web page for information on sumbitting GET requests.)

kct_sky_group_id 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 maintained 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. (KIC targets only) range: 1 - 84 long

kct_output_season_1 Output_1 Each module has four output channels (two per CCD). Each output is read out by a unique analog signal chain (e.g. amplifier). OUTPUT is an integer ranging from 1 to 4. An object can have a non-zero output number if it is off, but near, a CCD. Such cases can be identified by examining the expected ROW and COLUMN values for a specified season. (KIC targets only) range 1 to 4 long
kct_row_season_1 Row_1 Row number for season 1 with values ranging from -232 to 1098. Each channel has 1132 columns and 1070 rows. There are 1024 science rows enumerated as rows 20 through 1043. Collateral data is enumerated as rows 0 through 19 and 1044 through 1069. Values outside 0 through 1069 are enumerated in order to provide information about how far off a target is from the CCD channel. (KIC targets only) range -229 to 1043 long
kct_column_season_1 Column_1 Column number for season 1 defined like the Row values. Each channel has 1132 columns. There are 1100 science channels described as columns 12 - 1111. Collateral values range from 0-11 and 1112-1131. Other values ranging from -205 to -1 describe how far a target is from the CCD channel. (KIC targets only) range -204 to 1111 long
kct_channel_season_2 Channel_2 Integer channel number for season 2. There are 21 modules, each with 4 outputs for a total of 84 channels. CHANNEL is an integer ranging from 1 to 84 that uniquely specifies the MODULE/OUTPUT pair. An object can have a non-zero channel number if it is off, but near, a CCD. Such cases can be identified by examining the expected ROW and COLUMN values for a specified season. (KIC targets only) range: 1 to 84 long
kct_module_season_2 Module_2 Integer module number for season 2. A module refers to a pair of CCDs that share a field flattener and are read out simultaneously by the detector electronics. There are 21 modules on the focal plane. MODULE is an integer from the set [2-4,6-20,22-24]. An object can have a non-zero module number if it is off, but near, a CCD. Such cases can be identified by examining the expected ROW and COLUMN values for a specified season. (KIC targets only) 2-4,6-20,22-24 long
kct_output_season_2 Output_2 Each module has four output channels (two per CCD). Each output is read out by a unique analog signal chain (e.g. amplifier). OUTPUT is an integer ranging from 1 to 4.

Collateral data is enumerated as rows 0 through 19 and 1044 through 1069. Values outside 0 through 1069 are enumerated in order to provide information about how far off a target is from the CCD channel. (KIC targets only) range -223 to 1092 long
kct_column_season_2 Column_2 Column number for season 2 defined like the Row values. Each channel has 1132 columns. There are 1100 science channels described as columns 12 - 1111. Collateral values range from 0-11 and 1112-1131. Other values ranging from -205 to -1 describe how far a target is from the CCD channel. (KIC targets only) range -200 to 1111 long
kct_channel_season_3 Channel_3 Integer channel number for season 3. There are 21 modules, each with 4 outputs for a total of 84 channels. CHANNEL is an integer ranging from 1 to 84 that uniquely specifies the MODULE/OUTPUT pair. An object can have a non-zero channel number if it is off, but near, a CCD. Such cases can be identified by examining the expected ROW and COLUMN values for a specified season. (KIC targets only) range: 1 to 84 long
kct_module_season_3 Module_3 Integer module number for season 3. A module refers to a pair of CCDs that share a field flattener and are read out simultaneously by the detector electronics. There are 21 modules on the focal plane. MODULE is an integer from the set [2-4,6-20,22-24]. An object can have a non-zero module number if it is off, but near, a CCD.
