Search the AAT Archive for observations by RA+Dec, instrument, feed, observer or between two dates back to early operations in 1997.
Name Resolver simbad
The external name resolver uses the Sesame Service to query several databases for the name of an
astronomical object (outside the Solar
System bodies), and displays some fundamental parameters (type of object, J2000 position). The databases
queried are Simbad, NED, and VizieR. (For more information, see the Sesame Documentation).
The AAT Archive is an ongoing service to provide online access to the data observed to date on the
(archives for the TAIPAN instrument on UK Schmidt telscope and the Huntsman telescope are in-progress).
An 18 month proprietary period is in force.
Data less than 18 months old can only be distributed to a member of the observing team.
Contact us if you are a member of the
observing team and would like to retrieve proprietary data.
Speeding up your search
By default, all [topend]+instrument combinations are selected. Filtering by a specific
instrument can significantly improve the query time. Adding a date range filter can also improve the
Filtering by Observer
If you are filtering by observer, but aren't retrieving the correct results (e.g., missing rows),
try removing the observer filter and instead add a date range. The AAT archive database
OBSERVER field is inconsistent and you may be unable to recover the rows otherwise.
