AIA Image Map.

The Atmospheric Imaging Assembly is a set of four telescopes that employ normal-incidence, multi-layer coated optics to provide narrow-band imaging of the Sun. It provides high resolution full-disk images of the corona and transition region up to 0.5 solar radii above the solar limb with 1.5 arcsecond angular resolution and 12-second temporal resolution. It observes the Sun in the following seven extreme ultraviolet bandpasses: 94 A (Fe XVIII), 131 A (Fe VIII, XXI), 171 A (Fe IX), 193 A (Fe XII, XXIV), 211 A (Fe XIV), 304 A (He II), 335 A (Fe XVI). One telescope observes in the visible 1600 A (C IV) and the nearby continuun (1700 A).
