Hubble Legacy Archive Images

Post by Forum_2016 »

Good Evening All,
I just realized that we have access to the Hubble data in fits format. I would not post images from it but I would enjoy trying to process it. It shows the data as .fits format but when I attempt to open the downloaded file in AA5, it says file format is not supported. Has anyone in the group attempted to process any of this data? It appears that most of it is mosaic which I have no experience with. Any help or pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks.
Mike

Good evening,
maybe they are 64 bit FITS? This format is not supported by AA5.
AA6 should be able to open them, if you can, post the link to those images.
Thanks,
Fabio.
