Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Size of Camera Field Footprint: 5000 sq-degrees Available time: 3000 hours Exposure time: 1.6 hrs/field 5000 sq-degrees in 3000 hours = 1.67 sq-degree/hour Field of View 1.67 sq-deg * 1.6 hrs/field = 2.6 sq deg/field Exposure time split over ~5 separate images

Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Circles Tessellate The geometric meaning of the word tessellate is "to cover the plane with a pattern in such a way as to leave no region uncovered." The overlap doesn’t count towards the five.

9
Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Equilateral Triangle Square Hexagon 3 Regular Polygons Tile To tile is to tessellate is without overlaps Only 3 regular polygons can tile the plane. Others violate the rule that the angles of a vertex must add to 360.

10
Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Hexagons Tile Optimally Theorem (Honeycomb conjecture) Any partition of the plane into regions of equal area has perimeter at least that of the regular hexagonal honeycomb tiling. (Hales 1999) Hexagons maximize the unique area

11
Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis The Relevant Area is the Hexagon E2V devices LBL devices

13
Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Large Survey Photometry I Unique Properties: Single stable instrument Huge homogeneous photometric data set System defined by 10 8 magnitudes of the survey Survey Systems: System defined by detailed response of survey camera Zeropoints set by observations of standard stars Goals: Change brightness of object and move it 10s of degrees Effect is –only- that of -2.5 log( flux) Given a calibrated spectrum and detailed response curves, one can accurately predict measured magnitudes

14
Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Large Survey Photometry II Equations are of form: i = -2.5 log(Counts) – zp – k i (t) X Where zp is zeropoint X is airmass k i (t) is the extinction coefficent No cross terms Neglect of 2 nd order color/airmass term limits precision to 1% For a given night, 1 filter Maximizes numbers of standards/filter/night Keep airmass the same. k g = 0.15 k r = 0.11 k i = 0.10 k z = 0.05 If airmass changes from 1.2 to 1.4, then change in g is 0.02%

15
Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Large Survey Strategy I 2 hour stripes Roughly same airmass Same filter ~ 40 hexagons Maximizes photometric uniformity of 40 hex stripe Then go observe a standard Tile the plane Then, tile the plane with hex offset half hex over and up This gives 30% overlap with three hexagons Repeat

16
Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Large Survey Strategy II Tie the hex stripes together using these offset tilings. Maximize rigidity by using one hex tiling taking stripes vertical, across all hex stripes. This breaks the constant airmass, but eliminates large scale non- uniformities. Then zeropoint the rigid map. Dither pattern is thus a large scale Y shape ¼ -> ½ hex scale But dither is tied intimately to photometric calibration scheme. Akin to the ground based CMB mapping strategies

17
Dec 5+6 2003 FermilabDark Energy Camera Workshop Jim Annis Summary Southern Galactic Cap Use Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan Observe i,z during moony times Hexagons form the best map to count unique observations Need 2.1 o diameter corrector for a 2.6 degree 2 hexagon camera Use 1 filter/night, taking long connected swaths Aim to make photometrically rigid map by maximially interconnecting observations. Then zeropoint the rigid map Footprint Tiling Calibration / Dithering
