Hubble Deep Field South
(small region of the southern sky explored with HST)
The Hubble Deep Field South (HDF-S)
is an image of a small region of the southern sky
(a survey field within the constellation Ursa Major)
taken over a very long exposure with the Hubble Space Telescope aiming to image
the most distant galaxies possible. The goal was to provide
a resource analogous to the Hubble Deep Field providing objects for
further study by southern-hemisphere observatories.
