Images selected by the ALMA Scientific Advisory Committee in 2007 for
1. astronomical relevance
2. high S/N dynamic range (>1000)
3. high spatial dynamic range (>100)
|The original image was calculated in a numerical simulation by S. Wolf.|
The model image (SWOLF.MODEL) is 256 x 256 in size. It represents a protoplanetary disk as simulated by Wolf and D'Angelo 2005. It simulates a M_planet = 1 M_jup around a star of M_star = 0.5 Msun at a Distance = 50pc. A FITS model image optimized for CASA use is available.

M51 in H alpha
The model image (M51HA.MODEL) is 512 x 512 pixels in size. Large negative pixels resulting from subtraction of saturated stars have been blanked with 0's.
|This HII region in M31 displays complex extended structure.|
A small model FITS image (M31_128.FITS) is available. It was 1024 x 1024 pixels in size and had a pixel scale of 0.01 arcsecond for the 3 km array simulation.
HCO+ J=4-3 line emission in a protostellar envelope
|This is a model of the HCO+ 4-3 line emission in a protostellar envelope provided by M. Hogerheijde. The model is viewed at inclination 60 degrees.|
