The Pan-STARRS telescopes are a distributed aperture approach to rapid, multi-color wide-field surveys. The first of these telescopes, a prototype designated PS1, has been in operation now for over three years and has already obtained complete sky coverage of the full 3-π steradians visible from Haleakala in 5 broad passband filters at multiple epochs. On average the PS1 survey has obtained approximately 12 epochs though each filter. The second telescope, designated PS2, has been in its… 

Orbiting Astronomical Satellite for Investigating Stellar Systems (OASIS): following the water trail from the interstellar medium to oceans

Orbiting Astronomical Satellite for Investigating Stellar Systems (OASIS) is a space-based, MIDEX-class mission concept that employs a 17-meter diameter inflatable aperture with cryogenic heterodyne

Design differences between the Pan-STARRS PS1 and PS2 telescopes

The PS2 telescope is the second in an array of wide-field telescopes that is being built for the Panoramic-Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS) on Haleakala. The PS2 design has

Photometric Calibration of the First 1.5 Years of the Pan-STARRS1 Survey

We present a precise photometric calibration of the first 1.5 years of science imaging from the Pan-STARRS1 survey (PS1), an ongoing optical survey of the entire sky north of declination −30° in five

MAIN-BELT COMET P/2012 T1 (PANSTARRS)

We present initial results from observations and numerical analyses aimed at characterizing the main-belt comet P/2012 T1 (PANSTARRS). Optical monitoring observations were made between 2012 October

The International Celestial Reference Frame as Realized by Very Long Baseline Interferometry

A quasi-inertial reference frame is defined based on the radio positions of 212 extragalactic sources distributed over the entire sky. The positional accuracy of these sources is better than about 1

Newly discovered RR Lyrae stars in the SDSS–Pan-STARRS1–Catalina footprint

We present the detection of 6,371 RR Lyrae (RRL) stars distributed across ~14,000 deg^2 of the sky from the combined data of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), the Panoramic Survey Telescope and

THE HAWAII INFRARED PARALLAX PROGRAM. I. ULTRACOOL BINARIES AND THE L/T TRANSITION,

We present the first results from our high-precision infrared (IR) astrometry program at the Canada–France–Hawaii Telescope. We measure parallaxes for 83 ultracool dwarfs (spectral types M6–T9) in 49

MEASURING DISTANCES AND REDDENINGS FOR A BILLION STARS: TOWARD A 3D DUST MAP FROM PAN-STARRS 1

We present a method to infer reddenings and distances to stars based only on their broad-band photometry, and show how this method can be used to produce a three-dimensional (3D) dust map of the

LHS 2803B: A VERY WIDE MID-T DWARF COMPANION TO AN OLD M DWARF IDENTIFIED FROM PAN-STARRS1

We report the discovery of a wide (∼1400 AU projected separation), common proper motion companion to the nearby M dwarf LHS 2803 (PSO J207.0300–13.7422). This object was discovered during our census

A MAP OF DUST REDDENING TO 4.5 kpc FROM Pan-STARRS1

We present a map of the dust reddening to 4.5 kpc derived from Pan-STARRS1 stellar photometry. The map covers almost the entire sky north of declination −30° at a resolution of 7′–14′, and is based

Cosmological Constraints from Measurements of Type Ia Supernovae Discovered During the First 1.5 Yr of the Pan-STARRS1 Survey

We present grizP1 light curves of 146 spectroscopically confirmed Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia; 0.03 < z < 0.65) discovered during the first 1.5 yr of the Pan-STARRS1 Medium Deep Survey. The
