Eric,

 

One workaround would be to export the table from CDS Vizier in VOTable
format and then import it into TopCat. You can then save it as ASCII or CSV
or several other formats. As part of writing the table Vizier constructs new
RA & DEC columns in signed decimal degrees that may be easier to import and
work with ?

 

Depending what you are intending to do with the data you might be able to
manipulate and plot it in TopCat - it is quite a powerful tool for Catalogue
operations.

 

Regards

 

John Murrell
