Hz3C is a project that has observed 22 high-redshift (1 < z < 2.5) 3C radio galaxies and QSO's with HST WFC3 in the rest-frame UV and IR. A custom data reduction strategy is used to remove cosmic rays, persistence signal, and other data artifacts to produce high-quality images of the targets and their local environments. Both F606W and F140W observations are available in FITS format. These data were taken as part of the Cycle 20 HST snapshot program (ID 13023; P.I. Chiaberge), entitled "Universe in transition: powerful activity in the Bright Ages".

Description of Data Products
Each filter has a single FITS file available for download using the table below. There is also a color preview image, and a zoom version that includes a scale and target marker. The names of each FITS file are formatted to include the filter name. Example filenames are:
In addition to the FITS files, MAST also provides interactive displays that allow users to pan, zoom, adjust contrasts, and overlay source catalogs. You can access the FITS and preview JPG by clicking on the "FITS" or "PREV" links above each image in the table below. The "DISP" links will take you to the interactive displays.
