FWIW, I had to reload guide star catalogs at the end of 2019 and I contacted Bob Denny directly. At that time, he sent me to the second link Wayne listed below, so I would say Bob’s recommendation on this is current. I could not get the anonymous ftp to work, so I wound up downloading UNSO A2.0 from http://usnoa2.dc3.com/. Painful, but it did work.

I believe that USNO A2.0 is not available
Note tht Bob Denny's recommendation to use this catalog is several years old.
Are you seeking a catalog for platesolving to position a mount or for something that is more precise, e.g.astrometry?
