We report a historic K s -band light curve spanning over three decades of the FUor PGIR20dci recently discovered by Hillenbrand et al. We find some minor variability of the object prior to the FUor outburst, an initial rather slow rise in brightness, followed in 2019 by a much steeper rise to the maximum. 



Outbursting Young Stellar Object PGIR 20dci in the Perseus Arm

We report the discovery of a likely outbursting Class I young stellar object, associated with the star-forming region NGC 281-W (distance ∼2.8 kpc). The source is currently seen only at infrared

A Filter for Deep Near-Infrared Imaging

The K passband (central wavelength 2.2 microns, FWHM 0.4 micron) is the longest wavelength standard near-IR passband through which deep ground-based imaging is possible. Thermal emission from

The Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS)

Between 1997 June and 2001 February the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) collected 25.4 Tbytes of raw imaging data covering 99.998% of the celestial sphere in the near-infrared J (1.25 μm), H (1.65

The UKIRT Hemisphere Survey : definition and J-band data release.

This paper defines the UK Infra-red Telescope (UKIRT) Hemisphere Survey (UHS) and release of the complete J-band dataset and outlines the survey management, data acquisition, processing and calibration, quality control and archiving as well as summarising the characteristics of the released data products.

The UKIRT Wide Field Camera

I present a history of the development and commissioning of the highly successful UKIRT wide-field camera, WFCAM, which has made huge advances in infrared surveys in terms of both depth, speed and

WIRCam: the infrared wide-field camera for the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope

WIRCam (Wide-field InfraRed Camera) is a near-infrared (0.9-2.4 microns) camera developed for the prime focus of the Canada France Hawaii Telescope (CFHT), a 3.6-m telescope located on Mauna Kea,
