Puls: old designation for PSR, format AA HHMM or AA HHMM+DD Ref:=1976Ap&SS..44..479T byTERZIAN Y. , DAVIDSON K. Astrophys.

Details on Acronym:   Psr
   Psr (Pulsar)= (P) Write:<<PSR BHHMM+DD>>
<<PSR BHHMM+DDA>>
<<PSR BHHMM+DD.d>>
<<PSR JHHMM+DDMMA>>
<<PSR JHHMM+DDA>>
<<PSR JHHMM+DDMMaa>> Object:Psr  (SIMBAD class: Pulsar) Note:The usual format has long been 'HHMM+DD' (1950 coordinates).
A letter 'A' discrimates different pulsars when the format is too short to make the difference between several pulsars.
This letter is also used in the case of the millisecond pulsars, for ex. in 47 Tuc 'PSR 0021-72A' (Nos A-W), see [AJM88],
and in the case of the possible Planets in a PSR, for ex. 'PSR 1257+12A' (Nos A-D). Ref:=1981AJ.....86.1953M byMANCHESTER R.N. , TAYLOR J.H. Astron.
