I have noticed poor alignment between the Gaia Focus Product Release catalogue of Omega Cen and the HST Outreach image in the same region. Can this be fixed?

Dear Becky,

Thank you for your message. Please note that these outreach images are created by the HST mission for outreach purposes, and their astrometry will therefore sometimes not be as precise as Gaia. We will pass this information on to the Hubble Outreach team and see if there is anything that can be done to improve the astrometry of the images within ESASky. 

Kind regards,

Debbie, on behalf of the ESASky team
