Archives of Photographic PLates for Astronomical USE

Scan information on the solar plates (applause_dr3s.scan)

The table has 3613 rows, 28 columns.

Description

The scan table provides scans all information available of sanning process of the photographic plates, giving sizes, etc. A scan is a high-resolution image of a photographic plate or film. In the case of the Solar plates, we provide the already preprocessed images, details see level 1 description. Unique Identifier scan_id.
