  • It is the tension between creativity and skepticism that has produced the stunning and unexpected findings of science.

If there are any pro's here I could use some help with dataset file extensions and filters used. Currently I have access to stsci, HST, the ESO science archives etc... I just have problems finding the right files for processing. That is, I have to download full sets and then scroll through hundreds of files to find the calibrated files, its very time consuming. Is there a way to only get ONLY the 3 files needed to form the RGB set?
Any help is appreciated yes.gif
Currently I use the Aladin interface, also starview. I use the "stage" for FTP downloads usually. I have photoshop, fits liberator and registax. I also have autostar suite which has align, combign, drizzle and all the goodies.
I'm sure you realize the learning curve and trying to navigate nasa or any other archives for 3 little (or large actually) files.. its somewhat like "trying to find LESS than a needle in a haystack" hmm.gif I'll take anything I can get, Tx ahead yes.gif
If anyone else is interested in accessing and then processing your own space images you could start here:
