Notes:
 
Support codes (see also http://www.aao.gov.au/science/observing/support-astronomer-guidelines )
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.
Conditions/notes:
H Half night, change halfway between 18-degree twilights
O OPTICON allocation
R Observations can be conducted from the AAT or remotely from AAO North Ryde headquarters. Observers should discuss this with their scheduled support astronomer well in advance their observing run.
Support:

- The initials indicate which member of AAO staff is assigned to support each program.
- If the astronomer's name appears in parentheses then it is not expected the astronomer will be present at the telescope. However, the astronomer will be responsible for any other support required.
- If two support astronomers are listed, the FIRST name given is that of the primary support astronomer. The primary support astronomer is 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 coordinating service observing.

- Support astronomers may be contacted at email@aao.gov.au, where email usernames are given in the following table:

  Initials e-mail Name

  AWG andrew.green Andy Green  
  JL jon.lawrence Jon Lawrence  
  CL chris.lidman Chris Lidman  
  ALS angel.lopez-sanchez Angel Lopez-Sanchez

  LS lee.spitler Lee Spitler  
  TZ tayyaba.zafar Tayyaba Zafar  
  WC warrick.couch Warrick Couch  
         
 
Service & 2dF+AAOmega Observing:
 
All programs are required to send at least one, and not more than two, observers for their 2dF+AAOmega runs. PIs should inform the AAO through the usual travel channels of the proposed observers well in advance of their runs.
 
Half-nights:
 
Half-nights are defined as half of the time between evening and morning astronomical twilight.
