Abstract: The advent of large CCD mosaics is creating a challenge for archive centers. With nightly production rates in excess of 20 GB/night, it is necessary to have efficient methods to reduce the size of the data on archive media while preserving the information content. We report here on recent improvements to the compFITS (Véran & Wright 1994) non-lossy astronomical data compression method that will allow to efficiently address this challenge.
