CSC Threads

All threads

A list of all the threads on one page.


Contents have not been updated to match CSC 2.0

The CSC analysis threads have not yet been updated to match release 2.0 of CSC, but still provide a general overview of how the data products can be used. Please contact the CXC Helpdesk if you have any questions or problems.

Beginners should start here. The Introductory threads explain how to use CSCview to query the Chandra Source Catalog and download Level=3 data products and tables of source properties.


Learn how to query the catalog, retrieve and manipulate catalog data in the context of several science scenarios, with examples using the CIAO, Sherpa, and ChIPS analysis software.

Other Applications

These threads provide instructions for accessing the catalog via applications other than CSCview, such as DS9 and Google Earth.
