Title: Pan-STARRS Contributions to the UNIONS Collaboration

Presenter: Eugene Magnier


The UNIONS Collaboration will combine deep imaging data from CFHT and the Pan-STARRS telescopes. The Canada-France Imaging Survey (CFIS) is obtaining deep u-band images of 10,000 square degrees of extragalactic sky in the northern hemisphere and deep r-band images of 5000 square on the northern Galactic cap. Pan-STARRS, while searching for potentially hazardous asteroids, is on track to accumulate deep imaging of more than 3/4 of the full sky in w- and i-band, with deep z-band imaging for the northern Galactic cap. In this talk I will discuss the current status and future roadmap for the Pan-STARRS portion of this collaborative survey.
