EC 82 (aka HBC 672) color composite image using WFC3/IR filters F125W and F164N. This data collection also includes an older F160W image. See related README file and press release in the table below.

Introduction

This is a collection of High-Level Science Products resulting from outreach imaging projects at STScI. These observations were primarily intended to produce high-impact press releases, often associated with Hubble's anniversaries or other special events. Although driven by outreach purposes, the best practices for observing and data processing are applied. The README file for each individual target provides data processing details which are helpful if you utilize these data products for scientific research. Previous outreach imaging HLSPs can be found on the Hubble Heritage HLSP site. You can refer to the full collection of images created by the STScI Outreach Imaging Team using the DOI http://dx.doi.org/10.17909/T9RM3S.

Description of Data Products

The images are stored as FITS files with the following naming convention:

hlsp_wow_hst_<ins>_<target>_<filter>_v1_<type>.fits
where:
  • <ins> = instrument used, e.g., "acs", "wfc3", "acs-wfc3" if both
  • <target> = name of the target, e.g., "m8" for the Lagoon Nebula or "ec82" for EC 82
  • <filter> = the filter used, e.g., "f125w" or "f658n"
  • <type> = data product type, e.g., "dr{c,z}-sci" or "dr{c,z}-wht"
The "*-sci.fits" files are the images while the "*-wht.fits" are the weight files. Files that include "drc" in the file are CTE-corrected.
