Reading the LANL preprint list, I see that Robert J. Nemiroff & J. Bruce Rafert
(Michigan Technological University) have submitted an article to PASP entitled
"Towards a Continuous Record of the Sky". Quoting from the abstract (I think this
is permissible since the preprint service is free):
"It is currently feasible to start a continuous digital record of the entire
sky sensitive to visual magnitude 15 each night. A record of this type could be
created with a modest array of small telescopes, which collectively generate a
few Gigabytes of data each night."
Sure sounds like TASS to me (and is even more so if you read the preprint).
What bugs me about this paper is that TASS is not mentioned
(ASAS, ROTSE, etc. are), nor are either of Michael's AAS meeting abstracts referenced.
However, there is quite a bit of interesting work done on the requirements for an
all-sky survey, and I'll include similar information in my TN.
Tom: you need to get your TASS article submitted sometime!
