Deep Impact HRI-VIS 9P/Tempel 1 Encounter Calibrated Images v3.0


Abstract: This dataset contains calibrated images of comet 9P/Tempel 1 acquired by the High Resolution Instrument Visible CCD (HRIV) from 01 May through 04 July 2005 during the encounter phase of the Deep Impact mission. Version 3.0 was calibrated by the EPOXI mission pipeline and includes corrected observation times with a maximum difference of about 40 milliseconds, a change to decompress the camera's zero-DN lookup table entry to the top of its range and flag the affected pixels as saturated, the replacement of the I-over-F data products by multiplicative constants for converting radiance products to I-over-F, and the application of a horizontal destriping process.
