We describe the footprint and input catalog for bright nights in the LAMOST Pilot Survey, which began in October 2011. Targets are selected from two stripes in the north and south Galactic Cap regions, centered at δ = 29°, with 10° width in declination, covering right ascensions of 135° to 290° and −30° to 30° respectively. We selected spectroscopic targets from a combination of the SDSS and 2MASS point source catalogs. The catalog of stars defining the field centers (as required by the Shack…

Hypervelocity stars are believed to be ejected out from the Galactic center through dynamical interactions between (binary) stars and the central supermassive black hole(s). In this paper, we report

Fiber assignment in wide-field multiobject fiber-fed spectrographs

This work presents a simple and effective algorithm, the averaging (Aver) algorithm, to maximize the number of assigned targets for the first few visits of a given field, and finds that the GA can optimize the rotation angle with a specially designed fitness function in the case of focal-plane rotation that is expected to be realized in the future.

Fixing the reference frame for PPMXL proper motions using extragalactic sources

We quantify and correct systematic errors in PPMXL proper motions using extragalactic sources from the first two LAMOST data releases and the Vèron-Cetty & Vèron Catalog of Quasars. Although the
