Welcome to the CFHTLS @ CADC!
CFHTLS Release from Terapix T0007
and all associated MegaPrime/MegaCam images and meta-data are available on-line at CADC
The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope Legacy Survey (CFHTLS) is a major imaging project aimed at solving some fundamental astrophysical questions in our understanding of planetary systems and the distant Universe.
More than 450 nights of CFHT time were devoted to the Survey between 2003 and 2008. The Survey makes use of the MegaPrime/MegaCam
imager at CFHT.
The CFHTLS project is a collaboration between the CFHT corporation, le Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique de France, le Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique and the National Research Council of Canada.
The CFHTLS Steering Group
was responsible for the planning and execution of the Survey.

Based on observations obtained with MegaPrime/MegaCam, a joint project of
CFHT and CEA/IRFU, at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT)
which is operated by the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada, the
Institut National des Science de l'Univers of the Centre National de la
Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) of France, and the University of Hawaii. This
work is based in part on data products produced at Terapix available at the
Canadian Astronomy Data Centre as part of the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope Legacy
Survey, a collaborative project of NRC and CNRS.
