Additionally, Data Central provides a TAP (Table Access Protocol) service, for use with TOPCAT, Aladin and similar VO-compliant tools. To access the TAP service in e.g. TOPCAT, select the TAP option from the VO menu and under Selected TAP service enter https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/QpYbCBNZwLiz6lR3C1rTEk?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/QpYbCBNZwLiz6lR3C1rTEk?domain=datacentral.aao.gov.au> and click Use Service.
