Campaign 3 (Nov 14, 2014 - Feb 6, 2014)
+target list (csv)

The Campaign 3 target list consists of 16,375 standard long cadence and 55 standard short cadence targets. In addition we have included large pixel masks over dwarf planet (225088) 2007 OR10, the planet Neptune and its moon Nereid. Bodies within our own Solar System move relative to the celestial sphere and are covered by long streaks of pixels. We tiled the entire extent of (225088) 2007 OR10, Neptune and Nereid in long cadence and we have tiled approximate 20 days either side of the stationary point of Neptune in short cadence.

There was an error in the software we supplied to the community that reports whether potential targets that fall on active silicon. The roll coordinate used in the software was 5 degrees off from the as flown pointing. The result is that roughly 20% of proposed targets fell off active silicon and were not observable. We backfilled the target list with targets from lower ranked programs. The error was regrettable and we have put steps in place to prevent this happening again.
