Abstract: Spitzer 70μm confusion measurements are presented based on ultra-deep MIPS-70μm observations of GOODS Hubble Deep Field North (HDFN). The instrument noise for the MIPS-70μm band integrates down with nearly t−0.5 for the low background HDF-N field. The estimated confusion level is σc = 0.30 ± 0.15mJy for a limiting flux density of 1.5mJy (q = 5).
