Search for targets with target name

Anonymous 8 months ago in Search for data updated by Archive Science Group 8 months ago 1

it is not much clear how to search for a target. I tried to look for Sedna spectra, I tried typing Sedna, SEDNA, 90377 Sedna, 90377 SEDNA, and all the possible combinations on upper case, lower case, numbers, with spaces, without spaces, ecc, but I can't get any result. What am i doing wrong? I wasn't neither able to find an instruction page.


Thanks

Dear anonymous user,

thanks for your message and for using the Forum :)


The problem seems to be that there are no reduced products available for Sedna. In fact, also the search for coordinates (03:52:37 +07:58:18) produces no result.

There are a few FORS2/ISAAC observations of SEDNA in the raw data query form (pull-down menu selection in the green area=> "search by OBJECT FITS keyword", or input "sedna" in the "title" field of the pink area)

Finally, there are also external services like the "Solar System Object Image Search" at CADC that is scanning, among many others, some of the ESO image data collections (*) and returning lists of datasets containing potential observations of the SSOs. This service even provides links to the ESO archive for data download. I found 302 matching images (WFI, EFOSC, ISAAC, FORS).

I hope this helps, but please do not hesitate to write us if you still have doubts or problems.

PS In the Archive Portal, if you put your mouse arrow on the target window, a small facet with instructions will appear automatically and explain what kind of input is accepted and in which format.
