Field layout and coordinates

This is an overview of the relevant fields visible during SV (starting ~November 2012).

Overview of field for regular SV observations

Shown are the
  • main survey footprint (gray),
  • the SV spectroscopic training field (hatched),
  • the DES SN fields (green, dark is deep),
  • Stripe 82 (red),
  • CHFTLS W1 & D1 (blue),
  • the VVDS fields (magenta)
  • and the CLASH clusters A209, A383, MACSJ0329, MACSJ0416 (yellow circles, from left to right)
