Notes:
The format for support codes isÉ
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 their own support.
When more than one support astronomer's initials appear, the first named astronomer is always the principal contact.
OPTICON and NOAO exchange programs are shown in italics.
Conditions:
H Half night, change halfway between 18-degree twilights
U UCLES available for ToO override
R Remote observing - observations will be carried out from AAO North Ryde headquarters
C Daytime commissioning work on HERMES is possible (2dF top end is on the telescope)
