SkyView Images of Intermediate PolarsThese are 300 by 300 pixel GIF files of the 8.5 arcmin by 8.5 arcmin area of the sky from the digitized sky survey centered on the IP, obtained using SkyView. Coordinate system is equatorial, J2000 (north is up) and the projection scheme used is Gnomonic. The IP is pretty well centered on the chart in all cases.
Provenance - Data taken by Royal Observatory Edinburgh (Southern
Sky) or Oschin Schmidt Telescope on Palomar Mountain (Northern Sky).
Compression and distribution by Space Telescope Science Institute.
Important NotesThe digitized sky survey comprises the compressed digitization of the Southern Sky Survey and the Palomar Sky Survey E plates as distributed on CD ROM by the Space Telescope Science Institute.
Investigators using these scans are requested to include the above acknowledgements in any publications.
