Contents

Albedos - Contains the geometric albedos with wavelength (microns)

Spectra - Contains the spectra (W/m2Å) with wavelength (microns) in a native resolution and an R=8 resolution for objects as if orbiting an M9V, M0V, K0V, G0V, F0V star, and the Sun. 

Magnitudes - Contains the V, R, I, J, H, K, and Ks colors for each object at the native and R=8 resolution. 

Filters - Contains the throughput for each filter used.
