The Palomar Digital Sky Survey (DPOSS): Credits and Acknowledgments

DPOSS is based on the digitization of the POSS-II photographic sky atlas done at Space Telescope Science Institute and processed, calibrated, and catalogued at Caltech by the DPOSS team. The original photographic plates were obtained at Palomar Observatory's Samuel Oschin Telescope (48-inch Schmidt).

The production of DPOSS and the Palomar-Norris Sky Catalog (PNSC) was supported by a generous grant from the Norris Foundation and by other private donors. Some funding was also provided by the National Science Foundation. Key technology development funding was provided by the NASA AISRP program.

The following individuals have made key contributions to the project, listed here in a roughly chronological order:
