Magellanic Clouds Extinction Values

Enter a position within the Magellanic Clouds and/or select bands for which you require extinctions. The extinction values provided here are based on red clump stars as described in Haschke, R., et al (2011, AJ, 141, 158).

To find out how the extinctions for the various bands are computed, please refer to the service info .

If you want to compute extinctions for your object lists, see the service info's crossmatching with your tables chapter.
