Absolute proper motions for ∼7.7 million objects were derived based on data from the South Galactic Cap u-band Sky Survey (SCUSS) and astrometric data derived from uncompressed Digitized Sky Surveys that the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) created from the Palomar and UK Schmidt survey plates. We put a great deal of effort into correcting the position-, magnitude-, and color-dependent systematic errors in the derived absolute proper motions. The spectroscopically confirmed quasars… 

SOUTH GALACTIC CAP u-BAND SKY SURVEY (SCUSS): DATA RELEASE

The South Galactic Cap u-band Sky Survey (SCUSS) is a deep u-band imaging survey in the south Galactic cap using the 2.3 m Bok telescope. The survey observations were completed at the end of 2013,

South Galactic Cap u-band Sky Survey (SCUSS): Project Overview

The South Galactic Cap u-band Sky Survey (SCUSS) was established in 2009 in order to provide a photometric input catalog for target selection of the Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic

Photometric metallicity calibration with SDSS and SCUSS and its application to distant stars in the south Galactic cap

Based on Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) g, r and South Galactic Cap of u-band Sky Survey (SCUSS) u photometry, we develop a photometric calibration for estimating the stellar metallicity from u - g

The Study of Galactic Disk Kinematics with SCUSS and SDSS Data

We derive chemical and kinematics properties of G and K dwarfs from the SCUSS and SDSS data. We aim to characterize and explore the properties of the Galactic disk in order to understand their

Project Overview of the Beijing–Arizona Sky Survey

The Beijing–Arizona Sky Survey (BASS) is a wide-field two-band photometric survey of the northern Galactic Cap using the 90Prime imager on the 2.3 m Bok telescope at Kitt Peak. It is a four-year

A MONTE CARLO METHOD FOR MAKING THE SDSS u-BAND MAGNITUDE MORE ACCURATE

We develop a new Monte Carlo-based method to convert the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) u-band magnitude to the south Galactic Cap of the u-band Sky Survey (SCUSS) u-band magnitude. Due to the
