Hubble Space Telescope multi-color ACS mosaic of M82:
downloadable FITS data and associated preview images

Home | Download data | Interactive Display | README file (version1) | README file (version 2) | Paper (PDF 278 KB)

The table below lists the FITS files grouped by filter/bandwidth. Drizzled science data (*_drz_sci.fits) with corresponding weight maps (*_weight.fits), in FITS format. These have a scale of 0.05 arcsec per pixel, and have dimensions of 12288 x 12288 pixels (10.24 x 10.24 arcminutes) (~604 MB each when uncompressed). These files have been compressed for a faster download and are about 307 MB each. Low-resolution (1/4) block-averaged FITS versions of each mosaic and weight map were also produced using the IRAF blkavg task, mainly for "quick-look" downloading and viewing, and/or for educational purposes (not intended for scientific analysis). These have a scale of 0.20 arcsec per pixel, and dimensions of 3072 x 3072 pixels (~38 MB each, or 1/16 the size of the full-resolution mosaics).
