The Stromlo Southern Sky Survey Paul Francis, Brian Schmidt and Mike Bessell
Skymapper A two metre telescope (to be located at Siding Spring) with a very wide field of view: seven square degrees. The focal plane to be paved with 50 orthogonal transfer CCDs. Can map the whole southern sky down to B~23 in a week.
Interim Plans. The 40 Telescope, and its wide field imager (WFI) is being automated. As this occurs, it will increasingly become a survey instrument.
Z-band Survey 2MASS UKST Deep Wide
Bessell Objective Prism Survey Cover ~100 square degrees at the galactic pole Spectra down to 19th Mag. Resolution ~ 10A, coverage A.
