AOT32 (2015B) Call for proposals. Deadline 18.05.2015

also featuring GIANO, HAN-GTO, GIANOO and NOTTIME

AOT 32 (2015B) is now open for proposals
Applications for observing time for the period

September 1st, 2015 - February 29th, 2016

are solicited and should be submitted by
Monday 18th May, 2015, 12:00 UT

This semester the available time offered via INAF-TAC is 55 nights. See at the bottom for a detailed schedule breakdown. See below for the additional 20 nights available at NOT telescope.

Recommended mode is service, where TNG staff astronomers will perform the observations in the scheduled nights. The queuing mode is not offered. We will be accepting (few) DDT-like proposals during the whole semester, which will be judged in few days by TNG staff and INAF-TAC. Service mode will be the only modality for these observations.

TNG is a 3.58m optical/infrared telescope located at Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory in the island of La Palma (Canary Island). Its primary mirror is corrected by Active Optics and it is equipped with instruments for imaging and spectroscopy, spanning the optical and near infrared wavelengths range.

REM is a 60 cm robotic telescope located at La Silla ESO site (Chile) which can observe simultaneously with a visible and an infrared camera. The observations will be carried out in unmanned, queuing mode. INAF-TAC will allocate 1000 hours of observations.

REM is equipped with ROS2 visible camera and REMIR infrared camera. The two are observing simultaneously thanks to a dichroic. ROS2 will produce simultaneous images in the four Sloan-like passbands g, r, i, z. Charged time is therefore not the sum of ROS2 and REMIR but the highest of the two.


Application forms and detailed instructions can be downloaded from
the TNG web pages ( http://www.tng.iac.es/submit.html).

LONG TERM PROGRAMS: PIs of ongoing long term programs shall not send a new proposal.
Instead, they should send to the TAC (via an e-mail to director@tng.iac.es) a conveniently detailed progress report.

All proposals will be judged strictly on their scientific merit.
