   PSO (Pan-STARRS Object)= (PS1) Write:<<PSO JDDD.dddd+DD.dddda>> N: about 1010 Object:?  (SIMBAD class: Optical = Optical Source) Note:The Pan-STARRS project has deployed the PS1 telescope, and will deploy the full PS4 system by 2011. The project will detect billions of objects over 3π steradian and will visit each patch of the sky hundreds of times resulting in a huge database.
The Pan-STARRS project is currently surveying the sky north of Dec -30 and will produce an astrometric/photometric catalog with more than 10 billion entries. There will be an eventual database name, but this designation will offer a shorter, consistent nomenclature for discoveries off of Pan-STARRS images.
