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 we have performed "snapshot" imaging from the near-IR to the near-UV of a large number of these sources. Most recently we have 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 our 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.
