TNG Allocations - Period AOT23/2011A

Below are listed the TNG time allocations for period AOT23/2011A. The INAF-TAC approved proposals are sorted according to their scientific merit grades (descending order). Class C programs listed here are intended to be observed in queuing mode only when is not possible to observe any A or B program. Please see the AOT23/2011A schedule for details on visitor mode allocations and ToO programs.
