*Columns* (1) & (2): The right ascension ()
and declination
()
of the source in J2000 coordinates.

*Column* (3): The uncertainty in Right Ascension in seconds of arc,
calculated
from the quadratic sum of the MOST Right Ascension calibration uncertainty
and
equation 2 of the catalogue paper.

*Column* (4): The uncertainty in Declination in seconds of arc, calculated
from the quadratic sum of the MOST Declination calibration uncertainty
and equation 3 of the catalogue paper.

*Column* (5): The peak brightness
in units of mJy beam^{-1} and its associated uncertainty
calculated from the quadratic sum of equation 8 of the catalogue paper and the MOST flux
density calibration uncertainty of 3 per cent.

*Column* (6): The total flux density
in units of mJy and its associated uncertainty, calculated
from the equations described in C97.

*Columns* (7) & (8): The fitted major & minor axes of the
source in arcseconds.

*Column* (9): The fitted major axis position angle of the source in
degrees east of north. Most
unresolved sources would have PA values close to 0
or
180
since the MOST elliptical beam has PA=0.

*Column* (10): If the fitted major axis size exceeds the
beam size by more than
,
the major axis size after
deconvolution from the MOST beam is given in arcseconds.

*Column* (11): If the major axis is resolved the minor axis is
subsequently checked using the same criterion. If
the minor axis is found to be resolved the deconvolved minor axis size
is given in arcseconds.

*Column* (12): If the major axis is resolved, its deconvolved
position angle in degrees east from north is given.

*Column* (13): The name of the mosaic in which the source appears. The
original
mosaics are available online at
http://www.astrop.physics.usyd.edu.au/mosaics. In the case of
duplicate matches the mosaic name quoted is that used for the fit which is
chosen to be included in the catalogue.

*Column* (14): The number of mosaics in which the source appears. This is
included to let the user know when the source appears in more than one
image. The source parameters which appear in the catalogue are those
for the most reliable fit.

*Columns* (15) & (16): The X & Y pixel positions of the source on the
quoted mosaic.
