Data Set Abstract This data set contains EDR (raw) pre-encounter and encounter images taken by the Stardust Navigation Camera of comet 81P/Wild 2 (1978 A2). This is a new version of a subset of an existing data set, based on work done during the Stardust-NExT mission. The updated calibration from the Stardust-NExT mission was applied to these data in a separate data set (similar name: Level 3; RDR). Changes in the calibration of the NAVCAM instrument, between these prime mission data and those of the Stardust-NExT mission, are a possibility and are addressed in [KLAASENETAL2011B].
