PolyCam Star Field Images

PolyCam Images from 10-Month Calibrations

In August 2017, OSIRIS-REx passed its 10-month instrument calibrations with flying colors. During the exercise, the spacecraft’s PolyCam imager captured this series of images—with exposure lengths ranging from 0.1 to 10 seconds—showing a star field in the constellation Capricornus.
