SYNOPSIS

  $gsc = new Astro::Catalog::Query::CMC( RA        => $ra,
                                         Dec       => $dec,
                                         Radius    => $radius,
                                         Nout      => $number_out );

  my $catalog = $gsc->querydb();

WARNING

This code should be superceeded by the generic Vizier query class.

DESCRIPTION

The module is an object orientated interface to the online Carlsberg Meridian Catalogues (CMC11)

Stores information about an prospective query and allows the query to be made, returning an Astro::Catalog::Query::CMC object.

The object will by default pick up the proxy information from the HTTP_PROXY and NO_PROXY environment variables, see the LWP::UserAgent documentation for details.

See Astro::Catalog::BaseQuery for the catalog-independent methods.
