Update the XMM-Newton MOCs

Nora Loiseau 4 years ago updated by Deborah Baines 3 years ago 2

A user is requesting  XMM-Newton MOCs, as the ones provided for Chandra (http://cxc.harvard.edu/cda/cda_moc.html) it would be good to have them updated and easily accesible.

We could provide the fits files also from the XSA web page


Many thanks!

Dear Nora,

Please tell your user that they can access and download the latest XMM-Newton EPIC MOC here:


This can then be loaded and visualised in pyESASky or Aladin desktop for example. 

Also note, all other XMM-Newton MOCs, as well as the HiPS, can be found in http://skies.esac.esa.int/XMM-Newton/

(select the HiPS in the list and once opened, there's a link to the MOC in the list in the right).

Kind regards,

Debbie, on behalf of the ESASky Team

Dear Nora,

Thank you for the feedback. We are working on automatically updating the HiPS and MOCS for all missions in operation. Once this is completed, ESASky will always have the updated MOCS.

We will let you know when this is impletmented.

Kind regards,
