Revised 2-year plan for the UKIDSS GCS

N.C. Hambly on behalf of the GCS Working Group

August 2003

A revision of the plan for the UKIDSS GCS has been prompted by

At an ad hoc meeting of the GCS Working Group in Cambridge on July 9th 2003, the following decisions were taken (full minutes of the meeting are available at [1]): The revised two year plan is shown in Table 1.

Table: Revised 2 year programme for the GCS. In practice, any given pointing for the GCS will be observed at ZYJHK together or K only at the two epochs (except for Orion where two epochs are not required). The lowest priority targets 11 and 12 are currently outwith the two year plan but may be reinstated if fewer filters are needed for any of the higher priority targets in the final optimised programme (see text).
Relative Target Bands/areas Time
