two years ago I grabbed an XML star catalogue of the zodiac constellations that came in the following format:

<star>
    <id>1</id>
    <name>Sadalsuud</name>
    <desig>22 Bet Aqr</desig>
    <hip>106278</hip>
    <hd>204867</hd>
    <sao>145457</sao>
    <con>Aqr</con>
    <mag>2.9</mag>
    <dist>611.94</dist>
    <rad>6.5</rad>
    <spk>G0Ib</spk>
    <bvc>0.837</bvc>
    <teff>5700</teff>
    <mass>6.25</mass>
    <radius>50</radius>
    <ra>21.525979</ra>
    <de>-5.571155</de>
</star>

Sadly I forgot where I took them from.

Does somebody recognize this format or can recommend where I can get the stars of the constellations in a similar format?

Thank you!
