DSS Pleiades Mosaic How-To

Georgia), uses Montage v3.0 to create a mosaic of the Pleiades from online Digitized Sky Survey (DSS2) data. Relevant DSS2 FITS files are downloaded automatically through mArchiveList and mArchiveExec commands of the Montage package. Downloaded files are mosaicked into a 3x3 degree image via mProjExec and mAdd commands. Three large images are then put together as a false color image through the mJPEG command, where DSS2B/DSS2R/DSS2IR data are represented as blue/green/red, respectively.

LIVE REAL TIME SATELLITE TRACKING AND PREDICTIONS. The astronomical magnitude scale. The scale below is given as an instructive tool, to give a general idea of how the magnitude scale works.

The astronomical magnitude scale

The scale below is intended to be roughly visual; the human eye's (dark-adapted) detection efficiency peaks around 495 nanometers, while the formal photoelectric V peak (a filtered band intended to be close to visual) is around 550 nm; CCDs tend to peak around 700 nm. The examples are given for integer values are not "exact", in that celestial objects are often measured to a precision or 0.1 or 0.01 magnitude; for example, Sirius shines at V = -1.47 (Yale Bright Star Catalogue), and the planet Venus varies in brightness generally from magnitude -4.5 to -3.7.

VirGO is the next generation Visual Browser for the ESO Science Archive Facility developed by the VO Systems Department.

VirGo, The Virtual Archive Browser

It is a plug-in for the popular open source software Stellarium with added capabilities for browsing professional astronomical data. VirGO gives astronomers the possibility to easily discover and select data from millions of observations in a new visual and intuitive way. Its main feature is to perform real-time access and graphical display of a large number of observations by showing instrumental footprints and image previews, and to allow their selection and filtering for subsequent retrieval. It reads FITS images and catalogues in VOTable format. It superimposes DSS background images and allows to view the sky in a real life mode as seen from the main ESO sites.

A large fraction of ESO's non proprietary science products are already accessible through VirGO and more are to come: Data Availability Status Page Screenshots Download Installation Requirements.
