  • Eta Carinae Scale correction: The Eta Carinae scale was incorrect on the cd-rom. The scale stated the image was 71 arcsec on a side, but it should actually be 100 arcsec on a side. This would make the scale bar image incorrect as well. The scale bar graphic represented 5 arcsec, but it should be equal to 6 arcsec. To download a correct version of the Eta Carinae image with scale bar, please visit the following page:

  • E0102-72 Scale correction: The E0102-72 images with scale bars were incorrect on the cd-rom. The scale bar graphic represented 1 arcmin, but it should actually be equal to 4.4 arcsec. To download correct versions of the E0102-72 images with scale bars, please visit the following pages:

  • Orion Trapezium Scale correction: In the text of the Orion Trapezium handout, the size of the Trapezium cluster should be described as being 3 light years across instead of 1.5 light years across. The press release for Orion Trapezium references a "radius" of 1.5 light years, so the diameter should be 3 light years.

  • Addition to Readme File: The folder labelled "Xtras" on the Chandra Images & Handouts v1.2 CD-ROM contains the source files required to run the CD's main program and is not a section for extra usable material. You will be unable to open any of the .dxr files in the Xtras folder because changes in those files would result in not being able to run the CD's main program.
