Following the LAMOST Spectroscopic Survey and Xuyi’s Photometric Survey of GAC, we plan to conduct a time-domain Survey of AGC to study the variable sky using Nanshan 1m telescope. The survey will be conducted during winter (in Nov. Dec and Jan). The telescope has a 1.3degree*1.3 degree of field of view. In each observing night, a dual colors (V and R) time series for one degree^2 of sky will be obtained, with 60 sec of exposure time for each image. The first goal of the survey is to cover 270 degree^2 of sky area in three years. The survey intends to detect some strong transient events of stars and to find some short time-scale variable stars of different types.
