RACS-Mid catalog
by Duchesne et al.
The Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) has surveyed the sky at multiple frequencies as part of the Rapid ASKAP Continuum Survey (RACS). The RACS-mid survey was published by Duchesne et al. earlier this year, and a follow-up paper describes the first set of catalogues from RACS-mid, covering the sky below a declination of +49 degrees. The primary catalogue comprises 3,105,668 radio sources, including those in the Galactic Plane (2,861,923 excluding Galactic latitudes of |b| < 5 degrees) and the catalogue is estimated to be 95% complete for sources above 1.6 mJy. All RACS data products are available through the CSIRO ASKAP Science Data Archive. The image above shows cutouts of the radio galaxy PKS 0229-208. The images are the RACS-mid full-sensitivity image (left), the RACS-mid 25-arcsec image (centre left), the RACS-low 25-arcsec image (centre right), and a three-color Dark Energy Survey data release 2 image.
