Weather Conditions

Observing Plan and Goals for the Night

* Evening Standards: Yzirg.


* Nightly Defocus.

* Obstac: Mostly wide field

  • if obstac i-band observations within 1 hour of cosmos time AND
  • if i-band deep if i<1.0" (cosmos_ideep_1.json) [UNLIKELY DUE TO MOON]
  • else, more wide field

* Midpoint standard (using calspec) use only 1 (highest airmass): grizY (expect 05:00)
Split time for standards with BLISS
