New Archival Search Images

A quick note to announce new archival search images on the site. We’re gotten through about two thirds of the processed Suprime-Cam images from  9,850 exposures (or 9,850 exposures  x 10 chips on Suprime-cam = 98,500 FITs files!) from the date between 2007 Jan to 2013 Feb.  These are observations where the exposure time is less than 60 seconds.
