We have assembled a complete archive of Arcetri NICMOS3
based Infrared instruments
LongSp), with all available information stored in
a public database
All ARNICA data till 11/2003 are currently available.
We note that data will become publicly available only
one year after being acquired.
The sky coverage of data is available in
equatorial coordinates and in
The work done on our data was:
- Collection of all data on
support. and transfer of all data stored in the old Worm
disks to the more convenient new support. This transfer has
been already completed (5/96) On 2005 all data were
trasferred on DVD.
The disks present in the database are:
- Arnica 1, 2B, 3A/B, 4B,
5A/B, 6A/B, 7A/B,
8A, 9A/ B, 10/ A- WHT,
11A/B, 12A/B, 13A/B,
14A/B, 15A/B, 16A/B,
17A/B, 18A/B, 19A/B,
20A/B, 21A/B, 22A/B,

- LongSp 1, 2A/B, 3A, 4A/B.
- Collection of logbooks and all relevant information from FITS
headers. This phase is the most
cumbersome, and we ask the collaboration of all observers.
- Storing of a back-up copy of all data present in the database with all relevant information
format to a new series of CD-ROM or DVD-ROM. All data will
be arranged in a per-measurement basis, while retaining the
- Maintaining a Web interface to the global database for public accessibility.
The archive interface is available here.
All data till 5/2004 are currently available.
The help and some tips are available
The plate scale of data, not declared in Fits headers, can be assumed as follows:
TIRGO = 1"/pix, NOT = 0.48"/pix, TNG = 0.36"/pix, VATT = 0.35"/pix, WHT = 0.30"/pix.
A presentation of Tirgo Archive present and future, can be found here (Presented at WGA Meeting
3-4 / 3/2005, Trieste).
Note: on 5/2002, our strategy to recover absent or corrupted data
has changed. If you rely on these data, plese give a check!
Note that the TNG-Arnica data are made available here whit only the
data acquisition headers. The standard location od TNG data is
the Official TNG Archive which will
also contain all telescope informations.
An estimate of 11/2003 data size is: 126 CDs, 50 Gbytes, 328.000
Access statistics are available here.
