UK Schmidt Photographic Request Form

Use the form below to apply for UKST plates/films and/or apply for UKST plates/films to be scanned on SuperCOSMOS. (Use this form to request SuperCOSMOS scanning of non-UKST plates.)

This form places your input into a Latex file which is then made available for you to download. We recommend that you then process the Latex file, make any additions/corrections and then submit the completed form to us either by e-mail or post. Your application will then be acknowledged and assigned a reference number (T no.).

It's probably a good idea just to put a short amount of text or marker (or cut and paste from a file you've already created) in the Scientific case text box (section 3). Once you've download the filled in Latex form you can edit in the rest of the case. This is in case anything goes wrong (system/network crash) and will save you from having to re-type large amounts of text.

If you move to another WWW page in the middle of completing this form you should be able to get back to where you were using BACK on your browser. However it's probably safer to fill it all in one go!

NB - make sure the email is entered correctly (it accepts the @ symbol) eg
