SkyMapper Southern Sky Survey Data Release 2
Publish Time:2024-05-09
This Second Data Release begins SkyMapper's exploration of the deep Southern sky. DR2 includes the first release of images from the Main Survey (with exposure times between 2.5 and 20 times longer than the Shallow Survey, depending on the filter), as well as a larger Shallow Survey dataset, image processing enhancements, and a refined photometric calibration. Included are fields observed between March 2014 and March 2018, with a number of quality cuts applied. Measurements from over 4.7 billion detections covering over 21,000 deg2 of sky are available. They correspond to over 500 million unique astrophysical objects from magnitude 8 to 22. All magnitudes reported on this site are AB mags. Our Mirror only include catalog data.
