About this atlas

These images come from observational work by Frank Winkler in conjunction with Yasser Rathore and Becky Walldroff (Kitt Peak Schmidt 1996 run); Knox Long (CTIO Schmidt 1998 run); and Tara Gokas and Chris Smith (CTIO Schmidt 2001 run). The final images and this atlas were compiled by Teddy Smyth, Middlebury College class of 2015, and Lucia Perez, Wellesley College class of 2014, in a summer research project under Frank Winkler.

To process the images, we used IRAF and SAOImage DS9.

Outside images come from available WISE, IRIS, and Chandra data.
