HST 20th Anniversary Image - WFC3 Mosaic of Carina Nebula HH 901

Return to main Carina HLSP page

In early February 2010, mosaic images of the Herbig-Haro 901 and 902 (hereafter just HH 901) star formation sites were obtained using both the visible (UVIS) and infrared (IR) channels of the new Wide Field camera 3 (WFC3), which was installed by astronauts during Hubble Servicing Mission 4 (SM4) in May 2009. The multiple jets in this region emanate from prominent pillars carved out by the nearby Trumpler 14 star cluster within the huge Carina Nebula (NGC 3372).

The new WFC3 observations include four pointings in a 2x2 mosaic pattern, with small dithers within each pointing to fill the gaps between the two CCD chips, and allow for the rejection of cosmic rays and detector artifacts. A mosaic image was also obtained for a parallel field, using the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS, which was repaired during SM4) This new ACS F502N mosaic overlaps an older ACS F658N mosaic.
