2MASS Mosaics of MAST Scrapbook Sources
You can get a close-up map of a region by selecting a point in red or in yellow on the above image, or by typing a coordinate below.
The MAST Spectral/Image Scrapbook is designed to allow users to take a quick look at sample data in the MAST archive of a particular astronomical object of interest. It is set up here as an interoperability project between IRSA and MAST. For more information on the MAST Scrapbook details, please click here.
The Scrapbook is particularly useful if the user is not already familiar with the datasets involved. The spectral mission included in the scrapbook are: HST/FOS, HST/GHRS, HST/STIS, Astro/HUT, Astro/WUPPE, IUE, EUVE, ORFEUS/TUES, ORFEUS/BEFS
The imaging missions included in the scrapbook are: HST/WFPC2, HST/STIS, HST/FOC, Astro/UIT
Overlays in red on the ISSA all-sky image above represent image data locations in the Scrapbook; yellow overlays represent Scrapbook spectra locations. Either type in a coordinate and hit 'Submit' or click on any red (or yellow) region to get a close-up of the area; the size of the search is adjustable.

IRSA has constructed small 2MASS J-band mosaics for each Scrapbook region. The images are 20x20 arcmin in size (1 arcsec) resolution with projection centered on the Scrapbook location and Equatorial J2000 North up. Both FITS and JPEG version are available in the search results.
