Final Position

The image below shows the UVOT field with the final, astrometrically corrected XRT refined position. The image is 50" to a side, and contains 508 s of data in the WHITE filter.

Individual Frame Positions

The final position (magenta) is the weighted mean of 2 positions (green). A further 0 positions were rejected, either because they had too few photons to be secure (red) or because they are more than 3 sigma away from the mean position, more than 40" from the early mean, or had a problematic astrometric correction (yellow). The image is 50" to a side.
