Hinode SOT Image Map definition.

The Hinode Solar Optical Telescope (SOT) consists of a 50 cm diffraction-limited Gregorian telescope. It is optimized for accurate measurement of the vector magnetic field in the photosphere and dynamics of both the photosphere and chromosphere associated with the magnetic fields.

Hinode was launched on 22 September 2006 into a sun-synchronous orbit.
