Rosat Bright Survey

(RBS)
(list of bright X-ray sources from ROSAT observations)

The Rosat Bright Survey (designated as RBS) is a list of bright X-ray sources collected from ROSAT observations during the 1990s. It is a list/sample of X-ray sources from regions of the sky explored by ROSAT, selected by an X-ray brightness cutoff. It includes identification, associating the sources to objects in other non-X-ray surveys and observations. Among its objects are X-ray active galactic nuclei.
