Extended Source Confusion Flag: cc_flg

The XSC confusion flag, "cc_flg", indicates whether a source is identified as as artifact, associated with an artifact, associated with a large galaxy (a.k.a. "chaff"), derived from the Large Galaxy Atlas, or in fact an "inscan" duplicate. This flag is used to omit non-extended sources from the final catalog.

cc_flg = "C" or to "D"

cc_flg = "I" cc_flg = "a" cc_flg = "A" cc_flg = "z" cc_flg = "Z"
