Notes:
The format for support codes is...
F First night support will be provided
N No support will be provided at the telescope. The contact astronomer is listed.
Y Full support will be provided.
S Service mode or Director's time observations which will be carried out by AAO astronomers.
A An AAO astronomer is on the proposal and will provide her/his own support.
When more than one support astronomer's initials appear, the first-named astronomer is always the prinicipal contact.
OPTICON proposals are shown in italics.


Conditions:
H Half night, change halfway between 18-degree twilights.
I IRIS2 available for override (in the case of IRIS2, SPIRAL or CYCLOPS only). CYCLOPS programs that
  instead elect to use normal UCLES slit feed cannot be overridden.
U UCLES available for override (in the case of UCLES31 or UCLES79 only).
