Abstract

(Abstract only) DASCH is “Digital Access to a Sky Century at Harvard,” the effort to digitize approximately 500,000 astronomical plates in the Harvard College Observatory collection. The project to date has generated 700 GB of images with 41 MB of supporting data. This paper describes a prototype web site designed to give researchers easy access to this information.
