IDM represents the cross-identifications with astronomical catalogues
HD, DM, BS, GCVS, WDS, LS, LSS, and others.
idm comes from Idam which stands for "identification d'amas".
Crosss-identifications have been taken from the published papers when
possible, but a large part of the data has been obtained by the author.
- DM numbers follow the HD convention:
- CpD south of -52°,
- CoD between -23° and -51°,
- BD north of -23°.
