CD-ROM set produced by the Space Telescope Science Institute
through its Guide Star
Survey group. See the copyright
notices. Other versions of DSS are available from the
STSci - DSS

The entire DSS1 and DSS2 data are stored on magnetic
disks. Retrieval time takes less than 5 seconds for any field less than 20 arcmin in size.
Please read also the description of the ESO/ST-ECF DSS application.
A client to access the DSS-1 and DSS-2 at ESO directly from your
computer (without Web browser) is available
from here. The client can also be used in batch mode.

is also available. Check the service metadata.
