OmegaWhite is a variability survey aimed at periods of less than 2 hours. Using the wide-field camera OmegaCam on the VLT Survey Telescope (VST) 400 square degrees will be monitored for 2 hours in g' and in addition colour information will be obtained by imaging the same area in u', r', i' and narrow band He (5015) and Halpha filters. OmegaWhite is part of the European Galactic Plane Surveys (EGAPS). For additional information on OmegaWhite please have a look at this OmegaWhite survey website - http://www.astro.ru.nl/omegawhite/

VST/OmegaCAM Exploration of SUperclusters Voids and Intermediate Objects
One of three large surveys on the William Herschel Telescope (WHT) will be WEAVE-Clusters using the WEAVE Spectrograph. This will study cluster evolution through an analysis of the internal kinematics and stellar populations of dwarf galaxies. In preparation of this survey, deep imaging will be obtained with Wide Field Camera (WFC) on the Isaac Newton Telescope (INT) for some of these clusters. The resulting data set will be analyzed using special photometric techniques developed for the VST-Fornax Survey.

MegaPrime is the wide-field optical imaging facility at CFHT (Canada-France-Hawaii telescope) atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii. At the heart of MegaPrime is the wide-field imager, MegaCam, consisting of 36 2048 x 4612 pixel CCDs (a total of 340 megapixels), covering a full 1 degree x 1 degree field-of-view with a resolution of 0.187 arcsecond per pixel to properly sample the 0.7 arcsecond median seeing offered by the CFHT at Mauna Kea.

UKIDSS (UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey) is the next generation near-infrared sky survey, the successor to 2MASS using the infrared WFCAM survey instrument attached to the UK InfraRed Telescope (UKIRT) on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. UKIDSS began in May 2005 and will survey 7500 square degrees of the Northern sky, extending over both high and low Galactic latitudes, in JHK to K=18.3. This depth is three magnitudes deeper than 2MASS. UKIDSS will be the true near-infrared counterpart to the Sloan survey, and will produce as well a panoramic clear atlas of the Galactic plane.
The initial aim of ATLAS is to survey 4500 deg2 of the Southern Sky at high galactic latitudes to comparable depths to the SDSS in the North. The VST ATLAS will be the first step towards a panoramic digital survey of the Southern Sky in the optical bands.
OMA (ontological machine for Astro-Wise) is a prototype of the system for incorporation of external data sources in Astro-Wise. It will be used to test scientific use cases for OMA as well.
Leiden Tutorial. August 18-20.
For testing purposes only.
The Altas3D Survey is a proposed project to observe a complete sample of all early-type galaxies within the local (40Mpc) volume, using the SAURON integral-field spectrograph on the William Herschel Telescope.
In this project we observed with VST-OmegaCam in the ugri bands a sample of galaxy clusters selected from the Planck-SZ catalog at different redshifts. The data will be used to calibrate the mass estimate of the clusters by weak-lensing and the cluster mass/richness relation, that will be applied to larger samples available from other surveys such as KiDS

The Spitzer Adaptation of the Red-sequence Cluster Survey is a z'-passband imaging survey of the SWIRE Legacy Survey Fields. Observations of the six fields have been made at all seven Spitzer (3.6, 4.5, 5.8, 8.0, 24, 70, 160 micron) passbands. SpARCS consists of deep (z'= 24 AB) observations made from both hemispheres using MegaCam at CFHT (Northern Fields) and MOSAICII at CTIO (Southern Fields). The cluster detection (z'-imaging) phase is now complete and has yielded hundreds of z > 1 cluster candidates detected based upon z'-[3.6] color. With a total effective area of 41.9 square degrees, SpARCS is currently the largest completed z > 1 cluster survey. This project is for the processing of new (DECAM) and legacy SpARCS data.
This project contains data taken during the OmegaCAM integration test of October 2008. Instrument and detector were reassembled on Paranal, but not joined together. The shutter and filter mechanics were operated but not present in front of the detector.
The HST-ACS Coma Legacy Survey uses new data from the Hubble Space Telescope's Advanced Camera for Surveys and legacy data sources such as Subaru, Isaac Newton Telescope, etc. to study the nature of objects in and around the Coma Cluster.
