Commissioning of PAUCam, the imager for the Physics of the Accelerating Universe survey, is complete, and routine science exploitation is under way (for first-light images, see earlier news item
PAUCam is a visiting instrument instrument at the WHT, and is available for use by astronomers from the ING community.
So far, about 5000 science exposures have been obtained, covering ~1.5 square degrees of sky with the full set of 40 narrow-band filters, and about 5 square degrees with a subset
of filters. This is equivalent to having imaged about 500 square degrees of sky with only one filter in 9 nights.
