Aims. The Large Binocular Cameras (LBC) are two twin wide field cameras (FOV ~ 23' × 25') mounted at the prime foci of the 8.4 m Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). We performed a weak lensing analysis of the z = 0.288 cluster Abell 611 on g-band data obtained by the blue-optimized LBC in order to estimate the cluster mass. Methods. Owing to the complexity of the PSF of LBC, we decided to use two different approaches, KSB and shapelets, to measure the shape of background galaxies and to derive the… Expand

Point Spread Function Field Learning Based on Optimal Transport Distances
This work proposes an interpolation framework based on sliced optimal transport that estimates the PSFs at galaxies locations for shape measurement correction using a low dimensional representation of the unknown PSFs and derives representations of those PSFs in the Wasserstein metric. Expand
