BF star catalogue (or fully Bayer-Flamsteed star catalogue) is a star catalogue used to designate Bayer and Flamsteed stars with just numbers instead of Greek letters, Roman letters or Arabic numbers followed by constellation or caelregio genitives or abbreviations.

This catalogue contains 4610 stars. Actually, there are two non-stellar objects: the Andromeda Galaxy, designated BF 33, and a globular cluster Omega Centauri, designated BF 1154. The numbers in this catalog are sorted by constellations in alphabetical order and by Flamsteed numbers in each constellation. If BF stars have Bayer designations but no Flamsteed designations, then the numbers are sorted by Bayer designations instead.
