HRC Earth flats

HRC Earth flats


For some very large, diffuse objects such as the Moon, Jupiter, or 
the Orion Nebula, for example, some HRC Earth Flats may be more 
appropriate than the standard HRC pipeline flats. They are currently 
available for the HRC only. Please see ACS ISR 2005-12 by Bohlin et al. 
for more details. The list of HRC Earth Flats by filter is shown below. 
They are not available via the pipeline but you may access and download 
them via this link. Only the latest, best files are listed here, and 
these are what you should use if you want the latest and best 
performance. These files can be downloaded directly from the 
jref directory.

File names include the filter name and all files have this description:
"LP-flat from Earth obs. AFTER new mote on ~02Aug13. UNCONFIRMED FWOF"
