This field is used to determine the center of the field to be retrieved. If you specify coordinates these are used as the center. When equatorial coordinates are being used the RA may be specified as either hh mm ss or ddd.fff, i.e., in hours or in decimal degrees. The coordinate fields must be separated by a comma or sign of the declination.
If any letter is used in this field the field is assumed to be an object name and is sent to the SIMBAD name resolver to be resolved.

This selection box allows you to select data from a survey. The details of each individual survey can be found in the web site
Click on this field to choose among equatorial, galactic and ecliptic coordinates. The default is equatorial.
You may select the equinox year to be used in Equatorial or Ecliptic coordinates. Any equinox year within about two centuries of the present may be used. The default is 2000.
This field sets the size of the image in degrees. Enter the size of the sides of the image in the projected coordinates. Since there are distortions in the projection, the actual distance between corners of the image can be more or less than the specified size.
Note that the default size for an image is 300 times the intrinsic pixel size of an image.
You may select the dimensions of the image to be produced in pixels. By default an 300x300 image is produced. In conjunction with the image-size field you can control the resolution of the image.
If this checkbox is set, a listing of objects in the image will be retrieved and returned as an additional FITS table.
This selection box allows you to select catalog(s) from which the objects are retrieved. This is only valid when Retrive catalog is set. Use the left mouse button and click the desired catalog on the list box to select it. To deselect it, click it again. Multiple catalogs may be selected in this way.
Determine whether to make a plot of image and objects after retrieving them.

The HEASARC welcomes your participation in a brief survey to capture how users access and utilize HEASARC data, software, and services. The outcome(s) of this survey will be used to guide, prioritize, and plan our activities and development in the coming years. It contains 20 questions, generally takes just a few minutes to complete, and your answers will remain totally anonymous. The survey is open until Dec 18, 2023. We thank you in advance for your valuable feedback.
