Abstract

Finding charts and J2000 positions accurate to about 1 arcsec are presented for the 528 high-redshift (z is greater than 1), luminous (MV is less than -25.5) quasars investigated in the HST Snapshot Survey. A histogram showing the distribution of the differences between the positions determined by the Space Telescope Science Institute Astrometric Support Program and the catalog positions is provided.
