Ophiuchus, Perseus, and Serpens fields in the C2D Spitzer Legacy program area.
Instruments: Bolocam itself is a large-format bolometric camera for observations at 1.1 and 2.1 mm. The camera has 115 working pixels with 8 arcmin FOV (approximately circular). The beam FWHM is 30 arcsec at 1.1 mm and 60 arcsec at 2.1 mm. At all wavelengths, the pixel spacing (nearest neighbors of hexagonal close-packed array) is 38 arcsec.
Science Products Generated: Images and catalogs in survey fields.
