Building a VISTA image

Because the VISTA camera has large gaps between the chips multiple images need to be taken at slightly different pointings so that an image covering a contiguous piece of sky can be reconstructed. This picture shows how six different "paw print" exposures are combined to make one "tile", shown on the right.
