- Assumed: the camera scientific FOV is 1 deg. x 1 deg., as expected from the optical+megacam design

- Pointings separated by 57' in RA (3' overlap in RA) and 56' in DEC (4' overlap in : larger than in RA to take into account the 62" gaps between CCD rows during the shift sequences for each pointing exposure).

- Areas are referred as

The total FOV is 9 deg. in RA and 8 deg. in DEC
