New data of the VISTA Deep Extragalactic Observations (VIDEO) Survey in the CDFS field released

Published: 26 Feb 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-CDFS DR2) a total of 159 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 ZJHKs deep stacks and a catalogue in the VIDEO-CDFS1 tile, along with J and Ks-band data for CDFS2 and CDFS3. To the 5σ limit, the Ks-­band selected catalogue contains 187,869 sources with Ks< 23.5 (AB) over ~1.5 square degrees (one tile).

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-CDFS Data Release 2 is accompanied by a comprehensive description.
