I’ve always assumed in some shape or form the pointing history of LSST and the 5 sigma limiting depth estimated by the prompt data products processing pipelines would be accessible in some form daily, so one could determine if some interesting comet should have been spotted in a specific Rubin Observatory observation that was taken the night before while the survey was happening, and then at data release there would be a separate pointing database with the data release.
I could see the limiting magnitude and pointing information being useful especially for early science with the alert stream.
Looking at the DPDD (Data Products Definition Document), there is no pointing information described. The visit table was pointed out to me, but that does not seem to include an estimate of the limiting magnitude of the image.
Could Data Management and Operations consider whether this information about vist metadata and estimate of the limiting magnitude derived from prompt processing should be available daily and on a data release timescale? And if this information will be accessible can it be briefly described in the DPDD?
