This research has made use of the data archive for the HST Treasury Program on Eta Carinae (GO 9973) which is available online at http://etacar.umn.edu. The archive is supported by the University of Minnesota and the Space Telescope Science Institute under contract with NASA.


Warning: This database continues to evolve.

This database will eventually include all of the spectra and images of Eta Carinae obtained with the HST and selected ground-based instruments.

To query this database, initially select either:

Caveat: This is Version 1.2, which does not yet include images and STIS/MAMA (UV) data. Moreover, it contains a few bugs that most users won't notice. The most dangerous example concerns ERR arrays, which are wrong by a constant multiplicative factor. (We will soon have a Technical Memo on this problem; meanwhile, be aware that STScI's ERR arrays are also misleading, though in a more subtle and equally dangerous way.)
