HST Snapshots of 3CR Radio Galaxies
The revised 3C catalogue (3CR, Bennett 1962) forms a flux-limited sample of the most radio-powerful sources in the northern hemisphere.
Over the decade and a half of HST
operation, a snapshot imaging survey from the near-IR to the near-UV of a large number of these sources has been conducted.
Most recently the team has completed a NICMOS
1.6 micron survey of low-redshift (z<0.3) 3CR sources (Madrid et al. 2006, Floyd et al 2008).
The fully-reduced data for all 101 sources included in those papers are presented here in numerical order.
This includes 90 sources from the SNAP survey and a further 11 from the NIC2 archive.
See the above papers for a full discussion of the data.
Brief notes are provided for each object.
A README file is provided with additional information about the project and data reduction.
