Batch form - pixel data

This form allows you to request the extraction of up to a combined TOTAL of 500 FITS images at a time. Images can be extracted from any/all of the surveys/wavebands available. A restriction of 1000 sq arcmin has also been placed on the total area requested. The FITS images are returned as a link to a gzipped tar saveset. Images are sequentially numbered in the order they are extracted. If an image cannot be extracted (eg in the waveband requested is not available or does not cover that part of the sky) then no FITS image is created and that number is skipped.

Most of the information given in the introduction to the extraction of single images is applicable to the batch mode and can be found here.

Coordinates: input/browse for the full path & filename of the file containing your RAs and Decs here, each line in the file should only contain one RA and Dec in free format eg
01 23 45.12 -63 33 05
02 23 45.1 -50 43 22.2


Size of extracted square: arcmin. (0.2 < size < 15 arcmin)

Survey/Waveband (tick at least one box):
Southern :   UKJ-    UKR-    UKI-    ESOR (-90 < dec < -17.5)-    PAE (-17.5 < dec < +2.5)-
Northern :   POSSIIJ-    POSSIIR-    POSSIII-    PAE (+2.5 < dec < +90.0)-

Finding charts are also provided in postscript format. Please select the number of plots per page. It is often sensible for the number across the page to be the same as or a multiple of the no. waveband(s) selected.
