HST Images, Albedo Maps, and Shape of (1) Ceres

This dataset contains 267 HST ACS/HRC images of asteroid (1) Ceres obtained in 2003/2004 at three wavelengths, 535 nm, 335 nm, and 223 nm. They have been photometrically calibrated to standard reflectance unit I/F. The dataset also includes a shape for Ceres, as well as three surface albedo maps covering the area between +/-50 deg latitude, derived from these images.
