Wise Observatory Database
Search by Coordinates Utility
Search the Wise Observatory Images Database by
coordinates. This search is made over precessed (to J2000.0) lists of headers that
are sorted into declination zones.
This search return the header information in the Wise images. with one difference, the coordinates are in J2000.0
instead of the equinox of date.
For each image the search is done in the image size taking into account
the scale and number of pixels. Since the coordinates in the header could
have error of 1 or 2 arcmin. the area search is larger by 20% then
the image size.
