The HST processing and distribution system will be down from late Tuesday night (Oct. 25) until sometime Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 26) for software updates. Alternative sources are available for public data.

Search and Retrieval

HUT data are contained in the MAST HUT data base and may be retrieved using the HUT search form. As explained in the search help page, users may specify search criteria and output format. On the search results page, users may mark datasets of interest to be downloaded as a tar file.

A "quick search" of the HUT catalog may be performed by entering a target name or coordinates in the form labeled HUT Target Search at the top of the left navigation menu.

Users may also peruse a Catalog of HUT data. Pick an object category and click on object names or datasets. Clicking on the object name brings up a preview window while clicking on datasets initiates a pop-up window and the data can be downloaded to the desired area in your computer.

If you have problems retrieving your data, you can contact the help desk via the "Contacts" link at the bottom of this page.
