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 constellation Ursa Major) taken over a very long exposure with the Hubble Space Telescope aiming to image as distant galaxies as possible. The goal was to provide a resource analogous to the Hubble Deep Field providing objects for further study by southern-hemisphere observatories.

  • Right Ascension: 22h32m56.22s
  • Declination: -60d33m02.69s
  • Size: varied by instrument, the largest being 5.3 square arcminutes.
  • Exposure: on the order of 1-2 days for each image.
  • Date: September/October 1998
