UH 2.2m Visual Images and Astrometry of 9P/Tempel 1 from 1997-2000


Abstract: This data set includes calibrated images of Deep Impact mission target comet 9P/Tempel 1 taken from November 1997 through July 1999 using the University of Hawaii, 2.24 meter telescope and a Tektronics 2048x2048 CCD. Observations were made using the facility BVRI broadband filters. All data reductions were performed using the Image Reduction and Analysis Facility (IRAF). Data have been flattened, bias subtracted, trimmed, overscan corrected and cleaned for cosmic rays. This data set also includes tables of astrometric measurements of 9P/Tempel 1 as well as calibration frames taken from 1997 and into 2000. This is an ongoing, cumulative data set; reduced images of 9P/Tempel 1 images taken from 2000 through 2005 at the UH2.2m telescope are expected to be added in the future.
