 ke the parallel fields that seem to also    be available in MAST... waiting to see if ids from these fields    are used in the literature. (MB)    20-Aug-2019: Format {acs-wfc3 SPT-CL J0615-5746} NNNNN added    following 2019ApJ...878...66C, the first reference citing sources    from one of the acs-wfc3 catalogs. I only added the format for the    studied cluster, and decided to wait and see if the other formats    for the other clusters are needed. (MB)

The Reionization Lensing Cluster Survey (RELICS) was designed primarily to deliver the best and brightest high-redshift candidates from the first billion years after the Big Bang. RELICS observed 41 massive galaxy clusters with Hubble and Spitzer at 0.4-1.7µm and 3.0-5.0µm, respectively.
Observations: 46 WFC3/IR pointings (200 arcmin2) with two orbits divided among four filters (F105W, F125W, F140W, and F160W) and ACS imaging as needed to achieve single-orbit depth in each of three filters (F435W, F606W, and F814W), and Spitzer IRAC imaging (945 hours awarded, plus 100 archival).

The main numbering adopted here comes from the wfc3ir catalogs (based on detections in a wieghted stack WFC3/IR images only). However, if the format starts with acs-wfc3, it means that the numbering comes from theacs-wfc3 catalogs (based on detections in a weighted stack of all HST images, ie. ACS, WFC3/UVIS, and WFC3/IR).
