Hubble Deep Field South

(small region of the southern sky explored with HST)

The Hubble Deep Field South (HDF-S) is an image of a small region of the southern sky (a survey field within the constellation Ursa Major) taken over a very long exposure with the Hubble Space Telescope aiming to image the most distant galaxies possible. The goal was to provide a resource analogous to the Hubble Deep Field providing objects for further study by southern-hemisphere observatories.
