Table 7: A list of 45 long-period comets that satisfy our definition of a dynamically "new'' comet from the Oort cloud. The original perihelion and aphelion distances for each comet are listed ( $q_{\rm orig}$ and $Q_{\rm orig}$, respectively), as well as the previous perihelion distance $q_{\rm previous}$ obtained with the full dynamical model (Galactic tide plus 21 stellar perturbers). All values are in AU.
