[134.03] The Orion Nebula in 3.6 cm Continuum Emission: The First Combination of VLA and GBT Data

D. S. Shepherd, R. Maddalena, J. P. McMullin (National Radio Astronomy Observatory)

We present an 8.4 GHz continuum image of the ionized gas emission in the Orion Nebula. The image is constructed from a 3 x 3 mosaic observed with the Very Large Array (VLA) in the compact D configuration combined with an On-the-fly mosaic obtained with the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT). The VLA interferometric spacings provide high resolution to accurately image compact emission while the GBT data is used to recover the zero-spacing flux from the extended emission. The data was calibrated and imaged using the AIPS++ software.
