Skymap

Sky positions of the EIS-Wide patch A-D. The red shading is from the Burstein & Heiles reddening map (no values are available for low galactic latitude). The hatched regions show various radio surveys: blue = NVSS, wide-spaced green = future WENSS region, orange= MOST, narrow-spaced green = AT-ESP survey. The solid blue curve is the ecliptic with +/- 10 degrees plotted in dashed lines. Because of reselection of patch D, note that its position is different from the new coordinates listed below.
