Welcome to the GEMS Skywalker
This tool allows to view the
whole of the GEMS colour mosaic. The small overview image
(top-left) shows the full GEMS field, shrunk by a factor of
100. Select (click) one of the nine subframes (yellow border).
This 1/9 of the GEMS field is displayed in in the middle panel. Use
the mouse (click-drag) to move around the green circle in this field,
the zoomed view of the green circle is shown in the large image
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!!!
The GEMS images (inside of the red line) was complemented with coarser
images from the Combo-17 survey (outside) to not leave blank spaces.
