New data of the VISTA Deep Extragalactic Observations (VIDEO) Survey in the ELAIS-S1 field released

Published: 26 Mar 2015

VIDEO is a deep near-infrared survey which targets ~12 square degrees over the ELAIS-S1, XMMLSS, and ECDFS extragalactic fields. VIDEO belongs to the suite of six public surveys being conducted at ESO’s Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA).

In this release (VIDEO-ES1 DR2) a total of 401 individual single-OB tile images and the associated single-band source lists are released. Those have been reprocessed using version 1.3 of the VISTA reduction pipeline. The data also include deep stacks in Z,Y,J,H, and Ks bands. To the 5σ limit, the Ks-­band selected catalogue contains 365,233 sources with Ks< 23.5 (AB) over ~3 square degrees (two tiles).

Images can be queried and downloaded from the ESO Science Archive Facility while the band-merged catalogue data are accessible from ESO’s catalogue facility query interface. The VIDEO-ES1 Data Release 2 is accompanied by a comprehensive description.
