UKST Semester 2003A Schedule
Dear UKST user,This letter accompanies the release of Version 1.0 of the UKST observing schedule for Semester 03A.
For those of you that have been awarded time by the TAGs, the UKST will provide full observing support for your run (i.e. 6dF robot operation and observing).
However, it is recommended that, where possible, successful applicants also attend the scheduled observations in order to run the 6dF data reduction pipeline and monitor data quality during the night.
