Orientation of image cutouts

Issue raised May 02 2016, 12:23 AEST; last modified Jun 21 2017, 16:03 AEST

EDR image cutouts served by this website and the Virtual Observatory SIAP service are oriented North-up, East-*right*. This is a legacy of the image read-out process. The images can be flipped to the traditional East-left sky projection using their WCS solutions in FITS-viewing software like ds9 and Aladin.

The images have been restored to the traditional projection from DR1 onwards.
