The HI peak temperature image of the LMC is a result of an ATCA aperture synthesis mosaic of 1344 pointing centres. The total area covered is 11x12 degrees, and the image is centred on RA 05:20:00, Dec -68:44:00 (J2000) and has a pixel increment of 40 arcsec. The image is in SIN projection, and has units of Kelvin. This image is made without zero-spacing observations, and thus lacks sensitivity to structure with size scale greater than 0.6 degree.
