Notes. Note: In the Planck channels, the statistical error bars in the polarization position angle of Tau A do not reflect the true uncertainties of these measurements. In addition to the statistical error, a 0.̊5 systematic error has to be added to the LFI measurements (Planck Collaboration III 2016) and 0.̊62 to the HFI measurements (Planck Collaboration VIII 2016) as indicated by the second ± symbol. Similarly, the WMAP errors in the polarized position angle are statistical and a systematic error of 1.̊5 has been added (Weiland et al. 2011).

(a)

Position angle for Planck calculated using the maximum likelihood filtering method.

(b)

Position angle for Planck calculated using aperture photometry.

(c)

Position angle for Planck LFI channels (30, 44, and 70 GHz) calculated using the maximum likelihood filtering method on the special beam deconvolved maps.

(d)

Position angle for Planck HFI channels (100, 143, 217, and 353 GHz) calculated using wider aperture photometry to allow for the angular extent of Tau A.

(e)

Position angle for Planck HFI channels (100, 143, 217, and 353 GHz) calculated using wider aperture photometry, and using HFI maps for which the diffuse bandpass correction has not been applied.
