Description


NED service to search for Images by Object Name or by position and radius, or refcode: The NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) provides a comprehensive fusion of multi-wavelength data for hundreds of millions of objects located beyond the Milky Way galaxy. This service retrieves images for a named object. FITS images across the electromagnetic spectrum have been collected from large surveys, compilations, and the literature. Many original images are contributed by authors of journal articles. FITS images archived in NED are queried by celestial coordinates and areal coverage or refcode.
