I’d really like to learn more both about very bright-star recovery from LSST data, and about the twilight mini-survey.
We’ve proposed a session for the #sci:lsst2017 in Tucson next month to determine what OpSim strategies to compute for the mini-surveys (the discussion will also include the deep drilling fields). Some (many?) of the mini-survey goals will include sampling stars that are quite bright, and the set of possible strategies that allow exploration of the bright end of the CMD (particularly for variability) I think is still relatively unexplored.
I think we’re going to be having the planning discussion on slack once the block schedule is released. In the meantime, the Community thread for that session is called “Candidate strategies for mini-surveys” within #sci:lsst2017 (I’m not sure how to link directly to the thread). Comments and contributions are welcome!
