Data Access Note : When retrieving images from the MAST site this is the mapping between available survey options and the individual surveys

  • POSS2/UKSTU Red = POSS-II F (North), AAO-SES/SERC-ER (South), AAO-SR (Selected crowded southern galactic plane)
  • POSS2/UKSTU Blue = POSS-II J (North), SERC-J/SERC-EJ (South)
  • POSS2/UKSTU IR = POSS-II N (North), SERC-I (South)
  • POSS1 Red = POSS-I E
  • POSS1 Blue = POSS-I O
  • Quick-V = Pal-QV
  • HST Phase2(GSC2) = POSS2/UKSTU Red described above
  • HST Phase2(GSC1) = Pal-QV (North), SERC-J (South), SERC-QV (Selected crowded southern galactic plane), various SERC-V/PAL-V supplemental plates
  • DSS1 = Pal-QV (North), SERC-J/SERC-EJ (South) DEPRECATED & No Longer Supported
  • * Note that crowded SERC-J survey plates in the southern galactic plane were replaced with the short exposure SERC-QV to support HST requirements and so may not be available for download.
  • More information about the individual plates may be found in this file compiled from the observatory plate logs.
