Deep Sky Comparisons on Jan 10, 2003
at Jan 13, 2003 Coordinates

The team used the most detailed comparison images from NEAT and DSS during analysis.

DSS II images have more stars than the ones we are currently using. You can get an image by filling the form here: Select “Second Generation Red”. I have downloaded an image sometime ago and put it in my Yahoo briefcase. I also saved it as a BMP file for easy editing. These images have the coordinate embedded in the FITS header, so when you use SAOImage DS9 or FITSview, you can tell the coordinate by either moving the mouse or clicking on the image. Look for “Image Header Utilities”, specifically sethead program.
I found a NEAT image [right] which shows some deeper background.
