Observing on the UK SchmidtPhotography: UKST photographic observations are carried out as service.
FLAIR: Successful FLAIR applicants are required to assist at
the telescope during their observing run. Since observers are required
to fiber-up all fields following initial training by UKST staff, they should
be available on site for at least one full working day before the start
of their run. Observers who are prepared to stay on beyond the end of their
scheduled run may benefit from the opportunity to complete FLAIR observations
prevented by weather conditions during their scheduled slot, subject to
approval by the Astronomer-in-Charge.
