We describe the calibration status and data products pertaining to the GR2 and GR3 data releases of the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX ). These releases have identical pipeline calibrations that are significantly improved over the GR1 data release.GALEX continues to survey the sky in the far-ultraviolet (FUV, 154 nm) and near-ultraviolet (NUV, 232 nm) bands, providing simultaneous imaging with a pair of photon-counting, microchannel plate, delay line readout detectors. These 1.25 field of… CONTINUE READING
