Dear Visitor,

You may know we are in a phase of renovation and construction here at TNG due to the integration of the Harps-N spectrograph, which will shortly complement and upgrade the instrumentation offer from our telescope. You may have more info about this in our public page

We are doing our best to make this transition transparent to all your activities at TNG, we are not going to stop operations at any time, but you may understand that some nuisance will be inevitable, especially due to unforeseen jobs prolonging in the first part of the evening, just when you may want to begin with your flat fields or calibrations. We ask for patience and collaboration in those occasions, as your introduction astronomer or operator will find him/herself swifting among calibrations, dinner, start-ups, each of them important for the success of your observing night.

Sure of your understanding, we are always available to help.

Emilio Molinari, Director
Antonio Magazzù, Head of Astronomy
