This data set contains Calibrated data taken by the New Horizons Long Range Reconnaissance Imager instrument during the post-launch checkout mission phase. This is VERSION 3.0 of this data set. During the Launch Phase, LORRI conducted a variety of instrument commissioning activities in preparation for science operations. An extensive series of bias images was collected during the spring and summer of 2006, before the LORRI aperture door was opened. Images were also collected of LORRI's internal lamps. The LORRI aperture door was opened on 2006 August 29, and an extensive series of calibration observations of stars in the open cluster M7 was performed during the next several days. Commissioning test observations were also performed on the planetary targets Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. The Jovian observations were conducted specifically to test LORRI's ability to perform imaging using exposure times that were short compared to the frame transfer time (i.e., shorter than 13 ms). Some histogram-only solar scattered light observations were performed during a Ralph commissioning test. LORRI V3.0 provides a few updates from LORRI V2.0. The lossy images were recalibrated, including expanding the 'bad' pixel designation of 8x8 boxes affected by the first 34 pixels of header information in the calibrated quality map. Also, updates were made to the documentation and catalog files, primarily to resolve liens from the V2.0 peer review. No new observations were added with Version 3.0.
