We are starting a new run (suffix 'f') of the same test galaxies featured in the early science post. This time we're including SDSS-u imaging as a complement to the PS1 grizy spectral coverage. A similar run was done earlier, but now we're incorporating realistic uncertainties for all filters. The new run will tell us how accurately we can constrain our derived physical parameters using PS1 alone for high-resolution runs. After this test we will finally work on some other galaxies -- having finished important checks with the limited sample.

We're also now running on a dual server configuration in the AWS cloud. This will give us some measure of how we can scale out this project as more users come on-board

Hey Kevin,

Glad that you had some great results on the last few runs.

Happy Thanksgiving to you across the big pond.

Rev up the servers and send us all some more work to crunch. Have a great day!

Great news on the preliminary results of the first runs and good to see more work. I put 52 cores on it. :)
