Data Backup

Science Archive Access

While most people bring some sort of medium to use for backup of their astronomical data, such as their laptop or and external hard-drive, there may still be an occasion where data gets lost, or misplaced.

All data taken at Kitt Peak telescopes are backed up and kept in the NOIRLab Astro Data Archive, including all Mayall DESI raw data, as well as all the final, reduced data (Note: WIYN's NEID and NESSI data are archived elsewhere). Tutorials and other help can be found under the Help menu on that page.
