We thank the referee for very helpful comments and feedback on this manuscript. We are grateful to Anton Koekemoer and Warren Hack, the authors of the MultiDrizzle and PyDrizzle software packages. The HUDF and the surrounding observations in the CDF-S from the three Great Observatories are a unique resource for distant galaxy research. We thank NASA for funding the Chandra, Hubble, and Spitzer missions; their post-launch operations and science programs; and the numerous science teams who have contributed to one of the largest nonproprietary datasets ever taken. Support for this work was provided by NASA through Hubble Fellowship grant HF-51278.01. This work has further been supported by NASA grant HST-GO-11563.01 and ERC grant HIGHZ 227749. This work was supported in part by the National Science Foundation under grant PHY-1066293 and the Aspen Center for Physics. The data presented in this paper were obtained from either the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC/NRC/CSA) or the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST). STScI is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., under NASA contract NAS5-26555. Support for MAST for non HST data is provided by the NASA Office of Space Science via grant NNX09AF08G and by other grants and contracts.
