Dust in Nearby Galaxies with Spitzer (DUSTiNGS) Overview
DUSTiNGS Overview DUSTiNGS Primary Data Access DUSTiNGS Galaxy Summaries DUSTiNGS Catalogs


The Dust in Nearby Galaxies with Spitzer (DUSTiNGS) survey consists of a sample of 50 dwarf galaxies within 1.5 Mpc, which have been mapped with IRAC channels 1 and 2 (3.6 and 4.5 microns). The sample involves 37 dwarf spheroidal, 8 dwarf irregular, and 5 transition-type galaxies. The DUSTiNGS data release includes images and source catalogs based on uniform Spitzer 3.6 and 4.5 micron observations. Its catalogs are available in "full" and "good" versions, where quality cuts based on photometric accuracy and source morphology have been applied to the latter.
