The Australian Astronomical Observatory aims to provide excellent instrumentation and an high level of observing support and facilities to visiting astronomers. In order to help us maintain this high standard, we ask that you take a few minutes at the end of your observations with the AAT to fill in the report form below.

The report form refers to the Observatory's Client Service Charter. This short document sets out the performance goals of the AAO, and we ask for your judgement on how well these goals have been met.

The Observatory's policy on distributing the report forms is that they are automatically sent to the Director, Head of National Facilities Support, Operations Manager and IT Manager. They are then brought to the attention of appropriate managers by the Feedback Coordinator (Head of National Facilities Support). The Observatory will respond to any additional comments on the report form within three working days.

Users who wish to discuss any particular concerns in confidence are asked to contact the Director of the Australian Astronomical Observatory, Prof Warrick Couch, by sending e-mail to

Thank you for completing the report form.

Acknowledging the AAO in your publications

To help facilitate the tracking of publication of scientific results from the AAO, the AAO requests that users acknowledge the AAO in publications that use data obtained at the AAO. Users can use the following text as a template. 

Based [in part] on data acquired through the Australian Astronomical Observatory[, under program A/2013B/012]. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which the AAT [or UKST] stands, the Gamilaraay people, and pay our respects to elders past and present.

The program ID used here is used as an example, and elements of the text that are enclosed in square brackets can be modified or removed.
