Narrowband SN imaging program


This program will obtain narrowband imaging in the SN fields having deep NIR data but not yet having images from N964. Detection of emission lines in this filter can be used to check or improve the n(z) determinations in these fields, as well as search for strong line-emitting galaxies.


Any without significant clouds? Moon avoidance? Can we determine a max useful lunar phase?

Observer instructions

When conditions are good, place the narrowband JSON scripts onto SISPI's queue. (Scripts are attached to this page.) Each script does a cycle of z exposures and a N964 exposures and will take ??? minutes. You can repeat the scripts on a given field.

Give priority to field ? until we have ? seconds of accumulated exposure time (of some quality???).
