This paper presents an overview of the Interactive Analysis System for ISOCAM (CIA). 10 With this system ISOCAM data can be analysed for calibration and engineering purposes, the ISOCAM pipeline software validated and reened, and astronomical data processing can be performed. The system is mainly IDL-based but contains FORTRAN, C and C++ parts for special(More)
We have mapped the Antennae Galaxies (NGC 4038/39) in the 6.7 and 15 m continuum emission using ISOCAM 1 with ' 5 8" resolution. Spectrophotometric observations with the CVF in the spectral range 5.5 to 16.5 m have also been obtained. We compare the distribution of the infrared emission in the 2 nuclei and in the overlap region where the disks of the(More)
The zodiacal light is the dominant source of the mid-infrared sky brightness seen from Earth, and exozodiacal light is the dominant emission from planetary and debris systems around other stars. We observed the zodiacal light spectrum with the mid-infrared camera ISOCAM over the wavelength range 5–16 µm and a wide range of orientations relative to the Sun(More)
In large-scale spatial surveys, such as the forthcoming ESA Euclid mission, images may be undersampled due to the optical sensors sizes. Therefore, one may consider using a super-resolution (SR) method to recover aliased frequencies, prior to further analysis. This is particularly relevant for point-source images, which provide direct measurements of the(More)
With appropriate spatial resolution, images of spiral galaxies in thermal infrared (∼10 μm and beyond) often reveal a bright central component, distinct from the stellar bulge, superimposed on a disk with prominent spiral arms. ISO and Spitzer studies have shown that much of the scatter in the mid-infrared colors of spiral galaxies is related to changes in(More)
Based on observations with ISO, an ESA project with instruments funded by ESA Member States (especially the PI countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom) and with the participation of ISAS and NASA. Abstract. ESA's Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) was used to perform a deep survey with ISOCAM through three massive gravitationally(More)
Context: in large-scale spatial surveys, the Point Spread Function (PSF) varies across the instrument field of view (FOV). Local measurements of the PSFs are given by the isolated stars images. Yet, these estimates may not be directly usable for post-processings because of the observational noise and potentially the aliasing. Aims: given a set of aliased(More)
We present first results of a survey being made in a broad-band 6.75 m filter using the ISOCAM infrared camera in its parallel mode at 6" resolution. So far we have analysed a sky area of 1:375 deg 2 down to a limiting flux of 5 mJy and detected a total of 287 objects. The final survey will cover a sky area of 33 deg 2 , most of which will be done in(More)
