Luminous red galaxy clustering at z = 0.7 - First results using AAOmega
We report on the AAT-AAOmega LRG Pilot observing run to establish the feasibility of a large spectroscopic survey using the new AAOmega instrument. We have selected luminous red galaxies (LRGs) using single epoch SDSS riz-photometry to i < 20.5 and z < 20.2. We have observed in three fields including the COSMOS field and the COMBO-17 S11 field, obtaining a sample of ∼600 redshift z ≳ 0.5 LRGs. Exposure times varied from 1-4 h to determine the minimum exposure for AAOmega to make an essentially...[Show more]
