These browse images are not directly related to the mosaiced FITS files being distributed as High-Level Science Products (HLSP). The images were created from data drizzled by "pointing" to a scale of 0.05 arcsecond per pixel for the public release images. There are no HLSP for the individual pointings. We present the "browse" images to show a higher level of detail than are present in the mosaic previews. The public release data includes large images showing lots of detail.
