Index Catalogue of Visual Double Stars

The Index Catalogue of Visual Double Stars, or IDS, is a catalog of double stars. It was published by Lick Observatory in 1963 and contains measurements for 64,250 objects, covering the entire sky. [pp. 723–724, "The Observer's Guide to Astronomy: Volume 1", Patrick Martinez and Storm Dunlop, Cambridge University Press, 1994, ISBN 0521458986.] ["Index catalogue of visual double stars, 1961.0", Hamilton M. Jeffers, Willem H. van den Bos, and Frances M. Greeby, Publications of the Lick Observatory, Mount Hamilton: University of California, Lick Observatory, 1963, bibcode|1963icvd.book.....J.] The database used to construct this catalog was later transferred from Lick Observatory to the United States Naval Observatory, where it became the basis for the Washington Double Star Catalog.
