The Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX) Cutouts
Single Location
Cutout Size: (deg) [range: 0.21-2.0 deg]
Coordinate Examples:
  • 316.125972 45.911237 eq
  • 21h 04m 30.23s +45d 54m 40.5s Equ J2000
  • 46.5377 -0.2518 ga
  • M 16
Default: Equatorial J2000 Coordinate Help
NOTE: For single cutouts of MSX data larger than 2.0 deg, you can use Atlas, where the search size acts as your cutout size, up to 12.5 degrees.

(User Table Upload)
Table Upload Instructions: The input table should contain a list of coordinates or astronomical object names; a (cutout) size column is optional. Please see allowed table format information. A cutout size may be specified in a column in the input table, allowing for a different cutout size per position. Or, to have the same size cutouts for all input positions, specify one value in the Uniform Cutout size field below. Example table.
