SkyView Images of Intermediate Polars
These 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,
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).

The 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.
- The Palomar Sky Survey
- Based on photographic data obtained using Oschin Schmidt Telescope
on Palomar Mountain. The Palomar Observatory Sky Survey was funded
by the National Geographic Society. The Oschin Shmidt Telescope is
operated by the California Institue of Technology and Palomar
Observatory. The plates were processed into the present compressed
digital format with their permission. The Digitized Sky Survey was
produced at the Space Telescope Science Institute (ST ScI) under
U. S. Government grant NAG W-2166.
- The Southern Sky Survey
- Based on photographic data obtained
using the UK Schmidt Telescope. The UK Schmidt Telescope was operated
by the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, with funding from the UK Science
and Engineering Research Council, until 1988 June, and thereafter by the
Anglo-Australian Observatory. Original plate material is copyright
© the Royal Observatory Edinburgh and the Anglo-Australian Observatory.
The plates were processed into the present compressed digital form with
their permission. The Digitized Sky Survey was produced at the Space
Telescope Science Institute and US Government grant NAG W-2166.
