Many thanks for your suggestion. We are currently looking into the options of including very large sky maps (HiPS) to ESASky that are currently not available, and PanSTARRS is certainly one of the most important to include.
We'll let you know when this has been added.
Many thanks and regards,
Deborah, on behalf of the ESASky team
Many thanks for your suggestion. We already plan to add this feature to ESASky in the near future and will try to increase it in our priorities list.
If you use python and Jupyter notebooks, you might be interested that you can already do this within the Jupyter widget pyESASky and the command: esasky.addHiPS. E.g. to load PanSTARRS DR1 color-i-r-g use the command:
esasky.addHiPS("PanSTARRS DR1 color-i-r-g", "https://alasky.u-strasbg.fr/Pan-STARRS/DR1/color-i-r-g/")
Currently it just works for HiPS with one of the formats as jpeg. A fix is about to be added to pyESASky so it can also load HiPS with fits or png formats only.
See here for all information on pyESASky and how to install it: https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/esdc/pyesasky
Notebook examples can be found here: https://github.com/esdc-esac-esa-int/pyesasky/tree/master/samples

I've tried on the same Mac Operating System and the same Firefox version as you and I see no issue. Perhaps try restarting ESASky (hard refresh: SHIFT-COMMAND-R ) or restart your browser? It could also have been a temporary connection issue?
Let us know if you are still having problems.

Apologies for the delayed reply. Currently it is not possible to have cut outs with EDDIE in galactic coordinates, We have been looking into a technical solution and hope to update EDDIE with this functionality.
We'll let you know when it is available.
Dear ESASky User,
The issue has been fixed by the Chandra team.
Many thanks for contacting us and using ESASky!
Many thanks for your suggestion. We have added it to our backlog and will let you know when it has been implemented.
Yes we are planning to add other telescopes to the planning tool and we are extremely interested in adding the Roman Space Telescope! And having the SIAF file will make the process even easier for us. I will email you now to put you in contact with the team and to start discussing details.
Many thanks for contacting us!
This issue is now fixed in the latest version of ESASky, which now links to the New ISO Data Archive (NIDA). If you click on the preview column (magnifying glass icon), a postcard preview of the observation, coming from NIDA, opens in a window and clicking on the Archive column sends you to the NIDA results page for the corresponding ISO observation:
Many thanks for telling us about the issue!

Just an update, it is now possible to overlay user catalogues and catalogues from VizeiR using the Jupyter widget pyESASky, within a notebook. Filtering of the loaded columns is also possible. An example doing this can be found in the following notebook: https://github.com/esdc-esac-esa-int/pyesasky/blob/master/samples/What_can_you_do_with_pyESASky.ipynb
And see the accompanying video:
Finally, information on installing pyESASky can be found here:
We'll let you know when it's possible to query and upload user catalogues and VizieR catalogues in ESASky.
We have advanced considerably on the ESASky API and we have the documentation available here:
As you requested, it is possible to hide certain elements of the UI. Do let us know your opinion on the API and any improvements you may have!
