Satellite Constellation Avoidance with the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time

We investigate a novel satellite avoidance strategy to mitigate the impact of large commercial satellite constellations in low-Earth orbit on the Vera C. Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and

The anticipated ubiquity of privately owned and operated satellite spacecraft in low-Earth orbits will revolutionize the space domain. Space is becoming increasingly commercialized with satellite

Aggregate Effects of Proliferating LEO Objects and Implications for Astronomical Data Lost in the Noise

The rising population of artificial satellites and associated debris in low-altitude orbits is increasing the overall brightness of the night



Mitigation of LEO Satellite Brightness and Trail Effects on the Rubin Observatory LSST

We report studies on the mitigation of optical effects of bright low-Earth-orbit (LEO) satellites on Vera C. Rubin Observatory and its Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST). These include options

From Differential Image Motion to Seeing

The theory of the differential image motion monitor (DIMM), a standard and widely spread method of measuring astronomical seeing, is reviewed and extended. More accurate coefficients for computing

From the grating scale monitor to the generalized seeing monitor.

A new version of this instrument, the generalized seeing monitor (GSM), consisting of four identical modules for measuring the angle-of-arrival (AA) fluctuations of a perturbed wave front, is described and a detailed analysis of its performance and accuracy is made.

Galaxy blending effects in deep imaging cosmic shear probes of cosmology

Upcoming deep imaging surveys such as the Vera C. Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time will be confronted with challenges that come with increased depth. One of the leading systematic

The Hyper Suprime-Cam SSP transient survey in COSMOS: Overview

We present an overview of a deep transient survey of the COSMOS field with the Subaru Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC). The survey was performed for the 1.77 deg2 ultra-deep layer and 5.78 deg2 deep layer

Impact of Satellite Constellations on Optical Astronomy and Recommendations Toward Mitigations

The SATCON1 report concludes that the effects on astronomical research and on the human experience of the night sky range from “negligible” to “extreme” and led to recommendations for observatories and constellation operators.

The Low Earth Orbit Satellite Population and Impacts of the SpaceX Starlink Constellation

I discuss the current low Earth orbit artificial satellite population and show that the proposed “megaconstellation” of circa 12,000 Starlink Internet satellites would dominate the lower part of the

The Hyper Suprime-Cam SSP Survey: Overview and Survey Design

Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) is a wide-field imaging camera on the prime focus of the 8.2m Subaru telescope on the summit of Maunakea. A team of scientists from Japan, Taiwan and Princeton University is
