Chandra Deep Field South

(CDFS, CDF-S, CDF-South)
(X-ray deep survey encompassing HDF-South region)

The Chandra Deep Field South (CDF-South, CDFS or CDF-S) is an X-ray deep survey (within constellation Fornax) by the Chandra X-ray Observatory (CXO) ACIS spectrometer. The exposure is on the order of 80 days. The image reveals many distant X-ray sources, which suggest black holes, i.e., active galactic nuclei. GOODS-S and Hubble Ultra-Deep Field (HUDF) followed up surveying the same region at other wavelengths.

The Chandra Deep Field North (CDFN) is an analogous survey in the northern hemisphere covering the Hubble Deep Field (HDF) survey field.
