Deep Impact ITS-VIS 9P/Tempel 1 Encounter Reduced Images v3.0


Abstract: This dataset contains calibrated images of comet 9P/Tempel 1 acquired by the Impactor Targeting Sensor Visible CCD (ITS) after the impactor was released from the flyby spacecraft on 03 July 2005 during 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, and the replacement of the I-over-F data products by multiplicative constants for converting radiance products to I-over-F.
