First data release of the MUSE Analysis of Gas around Galaxies (MAGG)

Published: 18 Mar 2020

The MUSE Analysis of Gas around Galaxies project (MAGG, ESO programme ID: 197.A-0384, PI: M. Fumagalli) provides the community with high quality VLT/MUSE cubes centered on bright redshift z~3.5 quasars (Lofthouse et al. 2019). These absorbers were discovered in archival high-to-medium resolution spectra of the quasars collected, among others, with UVES and XSHOOTER.


New data release (DR5) of the ESO Public Survey VISTA Hemisphere Survey

Published: 17 Mar 2020

The VISTA Hemisphere Survey (VHS, ESO Programme ID: 79.A-2010, PI R. McMahon) is a wide area - multi band - near infrared survey, which when combined with other VISTA public surveys, will result in the coverage of the whole southern celestial hemisphere (Declination < 0; 20,000 deg2), to a depth 30 times fainter than 2MASS/DENIS in at least two filters (J and Ks), with a minimum exposure time of 60 seconds per filter and a median 5*sigma point source depth of AB = 20.8 and 20.0 in J and Ks filters respectively.


The final data release of the VISTA Kilo-degree Infrared Galaxy Public Survey: VIKING DR4

Published: 17 Mar 2020

The VISTA Kilo-degree Infrared Galaxy Public Survey (VIKING) is a wide area (covering a final area of 1350 sq. deg.), 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. The sky coverage has maximum overlap with the Kilo-Degree Survey KiDS in the optical bands.


First data release of the VISTA EXtension to Auxiliary Surveys (VEXAS)

Published: 13 Feb 2020

The VISTA EXtension to Auxiliary Surveys (VEXAS, 'Spiniello & Agnello, 2019, A&A, 630') project aims at providing photometric catalogues with the most uniform spatial coverage, in the multi-wavelength sky for various scientific uses, for example object classification (e.g. quasars, galaxies, and stars; high-z galaxies, white dwarfs), photometric redshifts of large galaxy samples and identification of exotic objects (e.g. extremely red objects and lensed quasars).


Publication of imaging products from the 'Accretion Discs in Halpha with OmegaCam - ADHOC' observing programme

Published: 12 Feb 2020

The ADHOC programme (096.C-0730(A) and 097.C-0749(A), PI G. Beccari) is equivalent to an OmegaCAM mini-survey targeting circumstellar discs in nearby Galactic star-forming regions. The scientific goal of this mini-survey is the study of the star formation history of several star-forming regions using deep, wide field, multi-band observations in the optical filters u, g, r, i and Hα, with depth reaching 21 AB mag in r. A total of eight star-forming regions in the Galaxy were observed.


New data release of spectra and catalogue from the VANDELS ESO Public Spectroscopic Survey

Published: 12 Nov 2019

VANDELS  is a deep Public Spectroscopic Survey targeting high-redshift galaxies in the UKIDSS Ultra Deep Survey (UDS) and Chandra Deep Field South (CDFS) survey fields using the VIMOS spectrograph. The goal is to obtain spectra with sufficient signal-to-noise ratio to derive stellar population ages, metallicities and outflows velocities from absorption line studies, allowing a detailed investigation of the physics of galaxies in the early Universe. Within an area of 0.2 deg2,  the survey aims at delivering ~2100 high signal-to-noise spectra of star-forming galaxies in the redshift range 1 < z < 7, with 85% of its targets selected to be at z >= 3, and passive galaxies in the redshift range 1 < z < 2.5.


Final imaging data release of the VST Public Survey VPHAS+

Published: 18 Oct 2019

The primary goal of the VST Photometric Hα Survey of the Southern Galactic Plane and Bulge (VPHAS+, PI J. E. Drew) is to collect single-epoch ugri broad-band and Hα narrow-band photometry across the southern Galactic Plane within the latitude range -5 < b < +5 with typical 5-sigma sensitivities for point sources down to 21 mag in Vega or fainter.


FEROS in-house processed data products not published since February 2019

Published: 18 Oct 2019

Archive users are informed that the generation of the in-house processed science data products for FEROS is currently suspended since February 2019. ESO is working on an improved version of the pipeline and the newly generated products will become available via the ESO archive interfaces in the incoming months. A new announcement will be posted once the publication of the reprocessed FEROS products is resumed.


First data release from the VISTA second cycle Public Survey VEILS

Published: 08 Oct 2019

The VISTA Extragalactic Infrared Legacy Survey (VEILS) is a deep J and Ks-band transient and wide-field survey being conducted using the VIRCAM camera with the primary goals of understanding the epoch of reionisation, the build-up of massive galaxies, and constraining the cosmological equation of state using both Type 1a supernovae and AGN dust lag measurements. VEILS is covering 9 deg2 of the extragalactic sky over three fields: XMM-LSS, CDFS and ELAIS-S1.


Deep MUSE IFU cubes from observations of eight nearby edge-on galaxies released

Published: 26 Sep 2019

Deep IFU data cubes are now released for a sample of eight nearby edge-on galaxies. These galaxies were observed with the Multi-Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) integral field unit at the VLT, under the ESO programmes 096.B-0054(A) and 097.B-0041(A) - PI S. Comeron - with the aim of studying the formation mechanism of the thick discs in these objects. The galaxies included in the current sample are: ESO 157-49, ESO 443-21, ESO 469-15, ESO 544-27, IC 217, IC 1553, PGC 28308 and PGC 30591.
