[82.05] Deep WFPC2 Parallels in the LMC

P. Plait (ACC/GSFC), S. Heap (NASA/GSFC), E. Malumuth (STX/GSFC)

WFPC2 parallel observations were taken during a series of FOS observations of R136a in the LMC as part of HST Proposal 6018 (Sally Heap, Principal Investigator). The WFPC2 images were taken using the filters F336W (exposure = 1600 s), F439W (5300 s), F547M (5700 s), F814W (8600 s) and F1042W (6400 s), and represent one of the deepest multi-band surveys ever taken of the LMC. The WFPC2 images are dithered because a series of different stars were observed with the FOS. We present the images combined using the "drizzle" method used on the Hubble Deep Field images, and also present preliminary photometric measurements of the region.
