Re-calibration of SDF/SXDS Photometric Catalogs of Suprime-Cam with SDSS Data Release 8
We present photometric recalibration of the Subaru Deep Field (SDF) and Subaru/XMM-Newton Deep Survey (SXDS). Recently, Yamanoi et al. (2012) suggested the existence of a discrepancy between the SDF and SXDS catalogs. We have used the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 8 (DR8) catalog and compared stars in common between SDF/SXDS and SDSS. We confirmed that there exists a 0.12 mag offset in B-band between the SDF and SXDS catalogs. Moreover, we found that significant zero point offsets in i-band (~ 0.10 mag) and z-band (~ 0.14 mag) need to be introduced to the SDF/SXDS catalogs to make it consistent with the SDSS catalog. We report the measured zero point offsets of five filter bands of SDF/SXDS catalogs. We studied the potential cause of these offsets, but the origins are yet to be understood.
