        Based on photographic data of the National Geographic Society -- Palomar
        Observatory Sky Survey (NGS-POSS) obtained using the Oschin Telescope on
        Palomar Mountain.  The NGS-POSS was funded by a grant from the National
        Geographic Society to the California Institute of Technology.  The
        plates were processed into the present compressed digital form with
        their permission.  The Digitized Sky Survey was produced at the Space
        Telescope Science Institute under US Government grant NAG W-2166.
        Investigators using these scans are requested to include the above
        acknowledgements in any publications.
