This guide is for long-time users of the retiring Classic HST Search, which is being replaced by the Modernized HST Search form. It contains side-by-side comparisons of common workflows in both search forms to help you transition to the new version.
These manual pages are actively being updated; more content will be available soon!
Basic Search — This page shows two side-by-side examples of a basic search in the Classic and New ("Missions") Search forms.
Time-Tag Search — In this search, we'll look for observations that were taken in the Time-Tag mode, then limit results by filter.
New Features — This page highlights some the exciting new features are are available in the updated Search Form.
We also have an introductory video that demonstrates an example search, which is embedded below.
NOTE: If the video is blurry when watching in full screen mode, consider changing the playback setting to a higher resolution (for example, 720p). This is accomplished using the Gear icon in the lower right. Note that the gear icon may not be present when this webpage first loads, but it will appear when the video is first played. In some cases, even if the icon says "HD" there may be a need to select the 1080p HD setting using the Gear icon to ensure the highest quality video.
