AOT18/08B Schedule

Listed below are the TNG nights scheduled for the AOT18/08B period. The dates refer to the beginning of the nights, e.g. an observer scheduled for Oct 29-30 will start on the evening of Oct 29 and end his/her run on the morning of Oct 31.

Visiting observers are kindly invited to read the instructions given here. In case of doubts, they may get in touch with the contact astronomer mentioned in the schedule. Please note that the contact astronomer is not necessarily the same person who will be present at the telescope during the scheduled night(s).

The class associated to the programs in service indicates the queuing priority (A=higher, C=lower) based on the scientific merit defined by the TNG time allocation committee. Astronomers with allocated queuing time must submit their observing blocks before 16:00UT of Jul 21, 2008. Please note that late submissions may result in downgrading of the observing blocks.

Other information, hints and warnings useful to prepare the observing run can be found here. Please note that special instructions and time constraints apply to programs requiring multi object spectroscopy (DOL-MOS), see the dedicated web page.
