Session 24 - Star Formation in the Galaxy & the LMC.
Display session, Tuesday, June 10
South Main Hall,
We present UV observations of the Pleiades open cluster taken with the UVISI instruments. Since the Pleiades cluster has been widely studied, it makes an excellent target to demonstrate the capabilities of these instruments. The UVISI suite of nine instruments (four imagers and five spectrographic imagers) was launched on the MSX spacecraft in April, 1995. The spacecraft and instruments are described in more detail in Mill et al. (1994)
The Pleiades cluster was observed with the UV imagers and the spectrographic imagers (SPIMs). The wide field UV image used a filter which covers 1450 to 1800 ÅThe data from the five SPIMs continuously covers the wavelength range 1100 Å\ to 9000 Å\ during one set of observations.
