The "newvar.cat" catalog lives at
Here are the first few lines:
2000 003852.95 +453350.3 TmzV64 12.6 <15.0p ?
2000 004937.90 +505641.4 TmzV63 10.9 12.9p ?
2000 010730.07 +292613.7 TmzV780 10.8 11.6p SR:
I'd bet that
col 1: equinox of position
col 2: Right Ascension, in format HHMMSS.ss
col 3: Declination, in format +DDMMSS.s
col 4: name
col 5: V-band magnitude? brightest magnitude?
col 5: photographic magnitude? faintest magnitude?
col 6: type of variable
I couldn't find a page describing the format, either,
but these are my guesses.
