DSSI Phase II Checklist
- The Instrument Name should be "DSSI"
- The Observing Tool has no mechanism to specify the instrument configuration (dichroic & filters), so please include a note with this information.
- The "Exp Time" should be the total desired integration time
- The Wavelength should be 0.7 microns.
- DSSI observations must be guided using PWFS2
- If the "Auto Guide Star" button fails please email your Contact Scientist to determine if an alternate may be used.
Standards and Calibrations
- Point source standards (bright stars known to be single) will be observed at each sky location with a minimum of one per hour.
- PIs should select the closest single (not binary) 5-6th magnitude star from the Yale Bright Star Catalog for each science target.
- These must be included in the OT with appropriate guide stars, preferably grouped with the corresponding science observation.
- If the field centering will not be obvious please include a finder chart showing the desired position.
