more K2 proposal

In my research time today, I kept on the K2 proposal. I made the argument that we want K2 to point less well in Campaign 9 than it has in previous Campaigns, because we want the crowded field (which is in the Bulge of the Milky Way) to move significantly relative to the pixel grid. We need that redundancy (or heterogeneity?) for self-calibration. I hope that—if we get this proposal funded—we will also get influence over the spacecraft attitude management!
