Extending the collection of UVES Echelle Science Data Products to slicer data

Published: 16 Dec 2013

The collection of pipeline-processed high-resolution spectral data obtained with the Ultraviolet and Visual Echelle Spectrograph (UVES) has been significantly extended, now also including the observations that make use of the image slicers in order to optimize the observing efficiency during sub-optimal seeing conditions. In addition to the UVES data announced on 24 October 2013, over 10,000 individual spectra, which have been acquired in the period between 2003 and 2013, are now available from the ESO Science Archive Facility. The data consist of extracted wavelength- and, whenever possible, flux-calibrated 1-dimensional spectra in tabular format following the established ESO science data products standard.


First Data Release of the VIKING five-band photometric catalogue

Published: 16 Dec 2013

VIKING belongs to the suite of six public surveys being conducted at ESO’s Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA). The VISTA Kilo-degree Infrared Galaxy Survey (VIKING) is a wide area (eventually ~1500 sq.degrees), intermediate-depth (5-sigma detection limit J~21 on Vega system) near-infrared imaging survey, in the five broadband filters Z, Y, J, H, Ks.


First Release of Gaia-ESO Spectroscopic Public Survey Data

Published: 18 Nov 2013

Data products resulting from the first release of the Gaia-ESO Public Spectroscopic Survey are now available via the dedicated Phase 3 query interface at the ESO Science Archive Facility.


First Release of VST Public Survey ATLAS Imaging Data

Published: 18 Nov 2013

Data products resulting from the first release of the ESO/VST Public Survey ATLAS are now available via the dedicated Phase 3 query interface at the ESO Science Archive Facility.


Release of UVES Echelle Science Data Products

Published: 24 Oct 2013

The ESO archive now provides access to reduced scientific data obtained with the UVES spectrograph mounted on the VLT.


First Data Release of VST Public Survey VPHAS+ Imaging Data

Published: 03 Sep 2013

Data products resulting from the first release of the ESO/VST Public Survey VPHAS+ are now available via the dedicated Phase 3 query interface at the ESO Science Archive Facility.

This data release covers the first 9 months of data-taking in which a tenth of the survey footprint was observed to desired quality. These first pointings have favoured the Galactic equator and some well-known open clusters of interest to the Gaia-ESO Survey. Reduced images and unstacked single-band source lists are provided. The total data volume of this data release is 749 GB.


Archive delivery on media and Pre-imaging requests

Published: 02 Sep 2013

Following the news of the 3rd of April, the media production service is now re-enabled. It is accessible via the dataportal facility which the user can reach after submitting a request using the "Request marked datasets" button. It now allows users to either instantaneously download the data they requested or request for their data to be copied onto a USB disk. The latter option is only available for requests totaling more than 400 GB. The USB disks are expected to be sent back to ESO within 2 weeks after reception.


First Data Release from the MATISSE/OCA-ESO Project (AMBRE)

Published: 15 Jul 2013

Stellar radial velocities, atmospheric parameters (effective temperature, surface gravity, mean metallicity [M/H]) and enrichment in alpha-elements ([alpha/Fe]) resulting from the automatic analysis of 21551 FEROS spectra from the ESO data archive with the MATISSE algorithm have been released. Go to the ESO Catalogue Facility(*) for data download and further information.


Deep HAWK-I J and Ks imaging of the X-­ray luminous galaxy cluster XMMU J2235.3-2557

Published: 12 Jul 2013

Data products resulting from ESO programme ID 60.A-­9284(H) as part of the first HAWK-­I science verification  are now available via the dedicated Phase 3 query interface at the ESO Science Archive Facility.

This data release consists of a mosaic of four pointings in two filters J and Ks, with the center of the X-­ray luminous galaxy cluster XMMU J2235.3-­2557 imaged in the four extreme corners of the HAWK-I detector mosaic. The deep image covers 13' by 13' on the sky with a pixel scale of 0.1065''. The image quality varies from 0.3'' to 0.7'' depending on filter and location.


First Release of VST Public Survey KiDS Imaging Data

Published: 12 Jul 2013

Data products resulting from the first release of the ESO/VST Public Survey KiDS are now available via the dedicated Phase 3 query interface at the ESO Science Archive Facility.
