Fields Overlay Diagram Description

The figure is shown in standard astronomical convention, with North up and East to the left. The GOODS-South field is outlined in green, and the ACS UDF is shown within it in a bright blue or cyan, with the slightly smaller field covered by the NICMOS UDF (Thompson et al.) in red within it. Also shown in red are the NICMOS parallels to the ACS UDF program, with the more northern overlapping pair representing the Epoch 1 observations at ORIENT 310 (more northern of the two) and ORIENT 314, which is slightly to the southeast. The more southern overlapping pair of NICMOS parallels in red represent Epoch 2, with observations at ORIENT 40 being the more northerly and those at ORIENT 44 being slightly to the southwest. The more northerly of the nearly completely overlapping but distinctive WFPC2 "bat wing" or "chevron" shapes marks the location of the Epoch 1 observations at ORIENT 310 (more western) and ORIENT 314, which is slightly farther to the East and is mostly contained within the GOODS field, while its southern counterpart (also farther to the East and just outside the GOODS area) represents the Epoch 2 observations, with those at ORIENT 40 being slightly more to the North, and those at ORIENT 44 being slightly more to the South. The two barely overlapping STIS fields in orange at the top (North) are from Epoch 1 at ORIENT 310 (westernmost) and ORIENT 314 (more to the East), and the two STIS fields in orange on the eastern edge of the figure are from Epoch 2, with the more northern of the two being that for ORIENT 40, and the southern one of the pair representing the field at ORIENT 44. The two small overlapping pairs of apertures in purple immediately to the South of the UDF are the ACS/HRC autoparallels to the ACS UDF, with those of Epoch 1 at ORIENT 310 being farthest to the northeast, and overlapping with those of ORIENT 314 to the southwest, while Epoch 2 ACS/HRC autoparallels are farther to the west, with those at ORIENT 40 being to the southeast and overlapping with those at ORIENT 44 which are farther to the northwest. Finally, the larger cyan or light blue blocks and the small purple lattice-work overlays on the southern and western edges of the GOODS-South field are (respectively) the ACS/WFC and ACS/HRC parallels of the Thompson et al. NICMOS UDF.
