      TACC supercomputer data reduction and hosting
        We acknowledge the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin for providing high performance computing, visualization, and storage resources that have contributed to the results reported within this paper.

  • Each Instrument and Project has its own acknowledgment and reference:

  • If you wish to acknowledge the assistance of members of our night operations staff, the night staff on duty can be looked up in the night report.

  • Press Release Policy:

    Press releases should be handled by each institution's publicity office, but on or preferably before the day of the release the HET Scientist should be informed. This will allow the HET Scientist to notify each of the partners, thus allowing them to respond appropriately to media interest or inquiries that might arise.

  • Use of SDSS/PS1/Gaia catalogs in observatory operations:

    This work makes use of the Pan-STARRS1 Surveys (PS1) and the PS1 public science archive, which have been made possible through contributions by the Institute for Astronomy, the University of Hawaii, the Pan-STARRS Project Office, the Max-Planck Society and its participating institutes. This work makes use of data from the European Space Agency (ESA) mission Gaia (https://www.cosmos.esa.int/gaia), processed by the Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC, https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/gaia/dpac/consortium). Funding for the DPAC has been provided by national institutions, in particular the institutions participating in the Gaia Mulitilateral Agreement. This work makes use of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV, with funding provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, and the Participating Institutions. SDSS-IV acknowledges support and resources from the Center for High-Performance Computing at the University of Utah. The SDSS web site is www.sdss.org.
