Footnotes
The format for support codes is ....
Y Full support will be provided
F First night support will be provided
N No support will be provided at the telescope. The contact astronomer is provided in parentheses.
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 astronomers initials appear, the first named astronomer is always the principal contact.
No proposals have starred status in semester 00B
a Mount detector three days in advance to allow dark current to settle and walls to fade.
b MITLL2A to be mounted 1 week prior to start of SEMPOL run to allow setup at coude. Daytime use of CCD controller must be negotiated with 2dF observers.
N Runs require Nod and Shuffle
T Terry Bridges on-site for day time 2dF support
Over-ride Programs
3hrs(see conds) A049 CANON, STATHAKIS SPIRAL B, MITLL2A S
30h(see conds) A015 Palazzi, TINNEY, Vreeswijk, Pian, Nicastro, Masetti + Range of Instruments S
6x2.5hrs 00A/P036 Haswell, Hynes, Chaty, STATHAKIS, Horne + Cass8,RGO25,300B/Taurus,RTTF,BTTF S

Schedule Notes

General Notes

    1. If the astronomer's name appears in parentheses then is not expected the astronomer will be present at the telescope, though the astronomer will be responsible for any other support required.
    2. In the case of 2dF, two support astronomers will often be listed. The FIRST name given is that of the primary support astronomer. The primary support astronomer should be the principal contact for all matter relating to this proposal, and is responsible for coordinating the provision of position files etc. The primary support astronomer is responsible for co-ordinating service observing.
    3. Support astronomers may be contacted at Email@aaoepp.aao.gov.au, where Email is the e-mail username in the following table.

Service & 2dF Observing

PATT will not usually pay T&S for proposals from UK astronomers allocated only one night, or UK astronomers allocated time on 2dF. It is therefore assumed that such awards will be carried out in service mode by the nominated support astronomer. If proposers are able to travel to the telescope using other funding, they should inform the relevant support astronomer and the Scheduler (sched@aaoepp.aao.gov.au) as soon as possible.

ATAC programs are required to send at least one, and not more than two, observers for their 2dF runs. PIs should inform the AAO through the usual travel channels of the proposed observers well in advance of their runs.

Half-nights, Quarter-nights etc.

Such nights are defined by appropriate fraction of the time between evening and morning astronomical twilight.

Over-ride Programs

Standard over-ride conditions (http://www.aao.gov.au/local/www/sll/applications/override.html) apply. Additional conditions include;

A049 --3hrs over-ride on A046 in <1.1arcsec seeing

A015 30hrs over-ride awarded with the following constraints;

  1. The over-ride may be invoked only for spectroscopy on the following AAT facilities; RGO Spectrograph, IRIS2 & Spiral B.
  2. Imaging over-ride is available on the above, WFI and Taurus until the end of October 2000. Beyond this date, further imaging over-ride, specifically due to further delays with HETE-2, is only available with approval from the director.
  3. Only one observation of any source may be made, up to a maximum of 3hrs over-ride.
  4. Any scheduled program will be subject to a maximum of one over-ride.
  5. No more than six over-rides may be requested for the program in any one semester.
  6. The AAO director may relax these rules, at his discretion, if a truly compelling scientific case can be made for doing so.
