The first volume of public ROSAT images on CD-ROM was distributed at the January 1994 meeting of the AAS. Volume 1 is a 2-CD-ROM set consisting of ROSAT broad-band PSPC and HRI FITS images which were originally released to the public in the interval Jan-Jun 1993. Also included on the CD-ROM are exposure maps (compressed with the UNIX compress utility to save space) as well as GIF versions of all the included images, and documentation describing the included data. Additional public ROSAT images will be included in future CD-ROM releases. In addition, other ROSAT data products will be released on CD-ROM. Stay tuned for further details. In the meantime, "ROSAT: The Images (Volume 1)" can be requested from Karen Smale (firstname.lastname@example.org) on a first-come first-served basis.
