Overview

The Hubble imaging Probe of Extreme Environments and Clusters ("HiPEEC") is a survey investigating star cluster formation in the extreme environments of six merging galaxies. The team provides the reduced, aligned and drizzled HST images (scale of 0.04 arcsec/pixel) for the six galaxies of the survey: NGC34, 1614, 4194, 3256, 3690 and 6052. There are 32 images in total and the filters cover at a minimum UBVI and H-alpha for each galaxy. The team also provides the star cluster catalog for each galaxy. Each catalog includes the position (RA, Dec), measured magnitudes, extinctions, ages and masses from fits to the spectral energy distributions. An explanation of the column contents is given at the start of each file.

Data Products

The file naming convention for the images is as follows:

hlsp_hipeec_hst_<ins>_<target>_<filter>_v1_<ext>

where:

  • <ins> = Instrument used, one of "acs-wfc", "acs-hrc", or "wfc3-uvis"
  • <target> = Name of galaxy, one of "ngc1614", "ngc3256", "ngc34", "ngc3690", "ngc4194", or "ngc6052"
  • <filter> = Name of filter used, e.g., "f438w"
  • <ext> = Type of file (extension), one of "drc.fits" or "drz.fits"

The file naming convention for the catalogs is as follows:

hlsp_hipeec_hst_<ins>_<target>_multiband_v1_pdmod-sbext.dat

where:

  • <ins> is a dash-separated list of all the instruments used across all the available images, e.g., "acs-wfc-wfc3-uvis"
  • <target> = Name of galaxy, one of "ngc1614", "ngc3256", "ngc34", "ngc3690", "ngc4194", or "ngc6052"

Data file types:

_drc.fits Drizzled image, CTE correction applied.
_drz.fits Drizzled image, no CTE correction applied (only for ACS HRC images).
_pdmod-sbext.dat Source catalog.
