Survey status - Red and InfraRed

Progess charts are available for the UKST infrared and Halpha surveys. (The blue(J) and red (R) surveys are complete for all 894 fields.) You can view the gif files but please note that they are fairly large and not the greatest resolution. For a cleaner picture download the compressed postscript versions.

Details of all (past and current) surveys undertaken by the UK Schmidt are given here.

(The status of POSS II atlases held in the UKST Plate Library ROE can be found under here

Key to plots

A completely filled in field indicates that there is an A-grade.

A hashed-in field indicates that there is an A-grade film original.

A half filled (diagonal) field indicates the best available survey plate is a B-grade.

A cross indicates that the best available survey plate is a C-grade.

Nothing in the field indicates no plate taken or worse than a C-grade.

The date of the last plate in the current log is displayed.

NB - Survey plates are NOT the only plates taken with the UKST many others exist (taken at the request of astronmers) to search the entire catalogue go here.
