Dear Sir,
I have downloaded- your observational data of NGC 4038-39 (Antennae Galaxy) in
tar.gz format. After extraction i got about 174 fit image file. Using ds9 i was
trying to open those file, but unable to do so. I am using 64-bit Ubuntu-9.04
operating system.
Kindly help!!!!
Regards,
Narayan

Dear Narayan,

could you, please, let me know which observation you are interested in exactly?
I assume you downloaded a PPS (set of pipeline processed data) from our
archive,
correct?

Which of the (usually many) images exactly do you want to open?
And do you get any error message?

It might be helpfull, after unpacking the PPS tar file to point your
web browser to the top level page, INDEX.HTM, in order to better underatnd
all the PPS constituents.

Can you open any other (non XMM-Newton) FITS file with ds9?

And what ahppens if you run the ftool 'fverify' on that file?

Cheers,
  Matthias

Dear Sir,
Thanx for your reply. I ahve downloaded the ODF of observational ID
0500070701<http://xsa.esac.esa.int:8080/aio/jsp/createPostcards.jsp?obsno=0500070701>of
NGC 4038/39 through AIO SIAP tool. Then unpacked the tar file and i
got
several (Around 170, as i already stated). I used file tool every some of
the images, and it was shown that the file was "FIT image file, 8 bit
unsigned binary". When i tried to open a few from many of them, i got an
error message as"Unable to load the ......FIT file".
Yes, i could be able to open some other FITS image through ds9. I also tried
"fv" but image was not displayed for the files i have extracted. Kindly
help!!!!
Regards,
Narayan

Dear Narayan,

which FITS file excatly do you try and fail to open with ds9?

Please note that many of the constituents of an ODF (raw data set) are
not images, but FITS tables with many columns; coul dit be that you tried to
open them?

For an overview about the XMM-Newton data, please have also a look at our SAS
Users Guide, available at 
http://xmm.esac.esa.int/sas/current/howtousesas.shtml
esp. table 3, 6 and 10 that list ODF file types.

Also our data analysis threads, at
http://xmm.esac.esa.int/sas/current/documentation/threads/
might help to get you started.

Regards,
  Matthias
