SuperCOSMOS Sky Surveys (SSS)These pages provide on-line access to the digitised data derived from SuperCOSMOS scans of photographic Schmidt survey plates.
Users can extract images (pixel data) up to 15 arcmin across and/or object catalogues covering up to 100 sq. degrees. The data cover three wavebands (BRI), with one colour (R) represented at two epochs.
The examples page is a good starting point if you're unfamiliar with astronomical coordinates and explains how to extract images of some interesting objects.
