Welcome to the GEMS Skywalker
This tool allows to view the
whole of the GEMS colour mosaic. The small overview image
(top-left) shows 1/9 of the entire GEMS field. Use the mouse
(click-drag) to move around in this field, the zoomed view of the
green circle is shown in the large image (right).
In reality the big image has the size of a box of half a millimeter in
size at one meter distance from your eyes (e.g. your stretched out
hand), projected on the sky!!!
To select a different 1/9th section, click in the navigation window
(center-left). The yellow square shows the active section.
The GEMS images (inside of the red line) was complemented with coarser
images from the Combo-17 survey (outside) to not leave blank spaces.
