Synthetic Galaxy Pipeline

Together with the HSC team, we have been working to develop the HSC Synthetic Galaxy Pipeline (SynPipe). This is a versatile tool that injects synthetic galaxies into real HSC images and can be used to test for a range of systematic effects (photometry, blending, star galaxy separation). Song Huang just published the first SynPipe paper which can now be found on the archive (Huang et al. 2017)!
