In this post we explore the extent to which SAT observations from the Pole can be extended. This is a sister post to the study of deeper SAT observations from Chile in Deeper SAT.

Here is a proposal for the ranges of the Pole SAT wide field (black outline) compared to the present bore sight observing ranges of the BICEP field (red outline):

The proposed wide field covers RA = -45..105 degrees and DEC = -60..-50 degrees, making the Pole observing elevations between 50 and 60 degrees. Substantially more area could be covered if we allowed for 45 degree observing elevations.
