Seeking info on which is the most accurate star catalog in terms of proper motion and epoch references to current?
I know GAIA is the latest and the most accurate one but it looks like it does not have entries for bright stars. Checked Sky Safari, there is no cross ref GAIA id for bright stars and CDC download options also mention no GAIA stars for bright HIP catalog stars. Is there any other modern catalog in currnet decade which has successfully measured bright stars?
