PS1 / IPP Public Data Distribution

Pan-STARRS 1 (PS1) is an astronomical observatory dedicated to surveying the sky in optical wavelengths. The telescope is located at the summit of Haleakala on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Data collected by the telescope are automatically processed by the PS1 Image Processing Pipeline (IPP).

The PS1 telescope has been in full survey operations since May 2010. In the intervening period, it is surveyed the 3/4 of the sky visible from Hawaii repeatedly in 5 bands. This "3pi" survey gets the major portion of the telescope time (56%), with the remaining time going to a variety of deep survey fields and dedicated asteroid search time.

One of the major goals of the 3pi survey is the construction of a high-quality photometric reference catalog covering the 3pi region (Dec > -30 deg).

These web pages provide the public access to data products related to the PS1 surveys, with particular emphasis on the bulk photometry (and eventually astrometry) datasets.
