The Javalambre-Photometric Local Universe Survey, J-PLUS, is an unprecedented photometric sky survey of 8500 deg2 visible from Javalambre, using a set of 12 broad, intermediate and narrow band filters. J-PLUS will be a powerful 3D view of the nearby Universe that will observe and characterize tens of millions of galaxies and stars of the Milky Way halo, with a wide range of Astrophysical applications.
The Javalambre Auxiliary Survey Telescope (JAST/T80) is an 80cm Ritchey Chrétien telescope with a large field of view of 2 deg diameter, particularly defined for carrying out large sky photometric surveys like J-PLUS.
T80Cam is a wide field camera installed at the Cassegrain focus of the JAST/T80 and equipped with by a 9200 x 9200, 10μm pixel high efficiency CCD. This full wafer CCD covers a large fraction of the telescope’s field of view (FoV) with a pixel scale of 0.55"/pixel. J-PLUS will observe through a set of 12 carefully optimized broad- and narrow-band filters.
The Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre is an astronomical Spanish ICTS particularly devoted to carry out large sky astronomical surveys with two large field of view telescopes, state-of-the-art panoramic instrumentation, and an unprecedented set of optical filters.
CEFCA announces worldwide open access to the Early Data Release (EDR) of the Javalambre Photometric Local Universe Survey. This EDR consists of 18 J-PLUS pointings at different locations of the sky, observed in the ...
J-PLUS will discover an unprecedented number of stars, galaxies, supernovas, quasars and solar system objects, which will be mapped with exquisite accuracy and will allow a wide variety of science applications.
