Sydney University Molonglo Sky Survey

The Sydney University Molonglo Sky Survey (SUMSS) is a deep radio survey at 843 MHz of the entire sky south of declination -30°;, made using the Molonglo Observatory Synthesis Telescope ( MOST ), located near Canberra, Australia.
The images from the SUMSS are produced as 4 x 4 degree mosaics of up to seventeen individual observations, to ensure even sensitivity across the sky. The mosaics slightly overlap each other. Data were last updated on January 28, 2015.

Images can also be obtained from the SUMSS Postage Stamp Server.

The SUMSS is intended to complement the NRAO-VLA Sky Survey (NVSS) which covered the sky between +90 and -40 deg declination, at a frequency of 1400MHz.
