Abstract The EUI consists of three telescopes, the Full Sun Imager (FSI) and two High Resolution Imagers (HRILYA, HRIEUV), which are optimised to image in Lyman-α and EUV (17.4 nm, 30.4 nm) to provide a coverage from the chromosphere up to corona.
Description EUI scientific data consists of calibrated and raw data images acquired by the three EUI telescopes (FSI, HRIEUV, HRILYA). Following the Solar Orbiter orbit profiles, the data coverage, imaging cadence and effective spatial resolution of the EUI data are very variable.

Mission Description Solar Orbiter is a mission of international collaboration between ESA and NASA. It explores the Sun and the heliosphere from close up and out of the ecliptic plane. Launched on 10 February 2020, it aims to address the overarching science question: how does the Sun create and control the Heliosphere – and why does solar activity change with time? To answer it, the Solar Orbiter spacecraft is cruising to a unique orbit around the Sun, eventually reaching a minimum perihelion of 0.28 AU, and performing measurements out of the ecliptic plane: reaching 18° heliographic latitude during its nominal mission phase, and above 30° during its extended mission phase. It carries six remote sensing instruments to observe the Sun and the solar corona, and four in-situ instruments to measure the solar wind, its thermal and energetic particles, and electromagnetic fields.
