Hubble Heritage Project
and MAST maintain this repository of high-level science products associated with
some of the Heritage press releases. These are the scientific data (in FITS format) used to create the Heritage
color composite press release images. The data has been expertly prepared, significantly
beyond the standard pipeline processing. This usually involves careful image registration,
combination, and cleaning via drizzling, making it a ready for further scientific analysis
and educational use.
These data are typically made available at the time of the associated press release,
and each include a README file with data reduction details. Their inclusion as MAST
High-Level Science products (HLSP) also means these data can be found via MAST archive queries.
The data can typically be downloaded from the lists of files for each target through your browser
or via anonymous ftp:
