News: IPHAS to IGAPS
With the arrival of IGAPS, merging data products from the IPHAS and UVEX surveys, a website superseding this one is now available: go to igapsimages.org. The new site serves up all the imaging data obtained over 15 years, now including IPHAS r/i/Hα images since 2014 and all UVEX URGO/g/r images. This site, iphas.org, will expire in autumn 2020.
The INT Photometric Hα Survey of the Northern Galactic Plane (IPHAS)
Read the survey description »
IPHAS is imaging the Northern Milky Way in visible light (Hα, r, i) down to >20th magnitude, using the Isaac Newton Telescope (INT) in La Palma.
Data Release 2 is available

IPHAS DR2 has been published by Barentsen et al (2014),
providing a catalogue of 219 million unique sources.

Supernova remnants discovered with IPHAS
Read the paper on ADS »
Five new supernova remnants have been discovered
using IPHAS H-alpha images.
The results are published in Sabin et al. 2013.
The INT Photometric H-Alpha Survey (IPHAS) is imaging the Northern Milky Way in visible light using the Isaac Newton Telescope (INT) in La Palma.
IPHAS surveys the Galactic Plane at -5° < b < +5° and 29° < l < 215°
in r, i, and Hα down to >20th magnitude.
The IPHAS (r-Hα, r-i) colour-colour plane enables a
broad range of science going beyond the selection of
emission line stars.
Data Release 2
Our public data products include a photometric catalogue, imaging data, and a 3D extinction map.
Our images can be used to construct wide-area mosaics of star-forming regions and extended objects.
Over 70 ADS entries mention IPHAS in the title, while
over 170 mention IPHAS in the abstract.
