Cygnus-X Data

Last updated: Sunday, 02-Apr-2023 12:18:01 EDT

Delivery 1 of the Cygnus-X data is now publicly available at IRSA:

The Data Delivery Description document gives the details of the data reduction methods and describes the properties of the data release.

IRSA is serving the Cygnus-X Enhanced Products data from the Spitzer Science Center (SSC) public data staging location.

  • The Cygnus-X IRAC and MIPS catalogs are available using IRSA's General Catalog Search Engine, Gator.
  • Available here using a spatial search are IRAC and MIPS image mosaics. IRAC mosaics are available at both 2.4" pixel scale and at 0.86" pixel scale. MIPS mosaics are available at 2.4" pixel scale and at 1.2" pixel scale. In addition to the full mosaics, image tiles are available for the user's convenience, as are tiles of the photometry mosaics from which the catalog photometry was derived. Please see the documentation and tile diagram for details.
  • Also available are Cygnus-X image "cutouts" using IRSA's Cutouts Service, which is a general tool to create single or multiple small FITS (and JPEGs) image cutouts of datasets archived at IRSA.

Harvard Dataverse Repository

The data are also available on the Harvard Dataverse at this link:
The dataverse site contains documentation on the data release and a color image of the full region mosaic (3.6, 8, and 24 micron)

Spitzer Image Releases

More color images of the survey mosaics are available on the Spitzer image and press release pages:
