GALEX survey updated to GR5

Since GR5 was processed with the same pipeline as GR4, it may be considered a supplement to GR4. [...]

0-zoom images updated

We have updated images at top zoom level (0). We already had 0-zoom images for IRAS, H-Alpha, astrophoto and SKY-MAP surveys. New images include DSS2, SDSS, RASS3 and GALEX surveys. Also astrophoto updated with latest images. The top level images represent whole sky in aitoff projection with center in R.A.=12h, Dec.=0° ____________

GALEX GR4 imaging data contains about 31,200 2 color band frames with round image area of 2900 pixels in diameter [...]
