Post date: Mar 24, 2014 2:50:49 PM
We just released the complete reduced extinction map of the Pipe nebula, described in Lombardi et al. (2006). The maps are based on the NICER and NICEST algorithms, and reach a resolution of 1 arcmin (30 arcsec pixel scale). The maps and ancillary data are available at the Harvard Dataverse repository:
