Computer Service

The Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams and Minor Planet Center operate a Computer Service (CS) which allows subscribers to receive electronic version of the IAU Circulars and Minor Planet Electronic Circulars (MPECs) by e-mail.

Subscribers also have access to older IAU Circulars (circulars older than about one year are freely available) and can use the IAUMail service to send themselves copies of recent circulars that failed to arrive.

Subscribers have the option of subscribing to:

  • IAU Circulars and MPECs
  • Just IAU Circulars
  • Just MPECs
The delivery address for IAU Circulars can be different to the delivery address for MPECs. Also, delivery of DOU MPECs can be suppressed on request.

Note that an e-mail address for delivery of circulars is required in order to subscribe to the Computer Service.


Details on how to subscribe to the Computer Service are available.
