- Simple LRS2 examples
- Examples using both LRS2-B and LRS1-R in the same track.
- Example 12a - Using a sequence group to take an LRS2-B exposure then an LRS2-R exposure in a single track
- Example 12b - Using a sequence group to take an LRS2-B exposure then an LRS2-R exposure in a single track for a list of different targets.
- Example 12c - Using a sequence group to take an LRS2-B exposure, an LRS2-R exposure in a single track and then moving to an offset position for a sky exposure for a list of different targets. Note that LRS2 exposes both LRS2-B and LRS2-R at the same time so for most cases nodding back and forth between them provides sufficient sky. This example should only be used for targets with very extended backgrounds (> 100").
- Examples using other types of groups
- Example 13a - Request a specific standard star to be observed on the same night as the primary science target. This uses an AND group.
- Examples using synoptic and phase blocking key words
- Example 14a - an example of an object we want to fill the phase for, ie. we want exposures every 10th of a phase except around 0.5 and 0.0.
- Example 14b - A slightly different example of an object we want to fill the phase for, ie. we want exposures every 10th of a phase except around 0.5 and 0.0.
- Example 14c - An example of an object we want 1 visit in one of two possible phase range pairs for 5 different pairs.
- Example 14d - An example of an object we want to observe in nearly any phase except for a some avoided phase(s). In this case we don't want to observe near phase 0 or 0.5, or more specifically we don't want to observe near 0.95-0.05 or 0.45-0.55.
