The Tartarus Database (Version 3.1)

During its life, ASCA performed 661 observations of objects designated as active galactic nuclei (AGNs). The Tartarus (Version 3.1) database contains events files, images, spectra, and light curves for 611 of these observations, i.e. for all cases where it was possible to produce data products. Results from rudimentary spectral fitting are also provided.
