No access to DR2 data

No access to DR2 data  

  By: Георгий Гончаров on April 3, 2021, 9:15 p.m.


I need a cone within 3 deg around NGC60. It is at a high Galactic latitude (-62 deg) and, hence, produce <100000 raws. I have tried all the ways to access the DR2 data. Nothing provides results. For example, the cone seach returns "The Cone Search service is currently unavailable - please try again later."

Please, help.

Unfortunately, we are currently having problems with our VO services, including the Cone Search. We hope to have the services restored early in the coming week.

In the meantime, two options I can suggest are:

1) If you only need sources brighter than ~18 ABmag, you can query the DR1.1 results via CDS' copy of the table, e.g., this Cone Search URL: http://vizier.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/conesearch/II/358/smss?

2) You can also try an Asynchronous query from the SkyMapper TAP endpoint ( http://api.skymapper.nci.org.au/public/tap ) like:

   TOP 200000
   FROM dr2.master
      1=CONTAINS(POINT('ICRS', raj2000, dej2000),
                 CIRCLE('ICRS', 3.99268741, -0.3035253, 3 ))

(Looks like we have 163,000-some objects within 3deg of the NGC 60 coordinates I found.)

Dear Christopher, Thank you very much! The second way does work. George
