- Click in the WFPC2 footprint just to the right of the nucleus (i.e., the

- One can also zoom in/out in the footprint display by adding a radius qualifier on the search box. In this case,
our search radius is 0.2 degrees. To zoom in one can add "r=0.05" to the search box or add "r=.5" to zoom out.
The r=.5 option is particularly interesting (though takes
longer) since the very busy region to the bottom right is SN 1987A (find relevant images by entering "*sn*"
in the target column in the inventory).
- To reduce the number of visits in the footprint display, one can filter out individual instruments
via the controls at the left of the display and clicking "Submit".
