CAT Time Allocations

Timing & Conditions

Note that time allocations are in hours rather than nights. The sky brightness and seeing constraints requested in the proposal must be specified in the phase 2 when preparing observations. Further details are given here.

Programmes

From Semester 09B we introduced the concept of an observing programme. A programme comprises one or more individual proposals which have a common ongoing research objective. Different PIs may have proposals within the same programme. Target data are shared between proposals in a programme, thereby simplifying data entry.

The simplest example of a programme is a series of similar proposals from the same PI in successive semesters, though there are also cases where separate proposals from multiple PIs in multiple TAGs might collaborate to form a single programme. Target coordinates and instrument configurations are shared between proposals in a programme, though password controlled access to the resulting science data remains on a proposal-by-proposal basis. The explicit concept of a continuing programme also clarifies the date at which an observing programme is complete and the proprietary period for the date expires.

Proposal IDs

From Semester 05B we imposed our own Proposal ID (PID) nomenclature for internal accounting purposes. For the PI's convenience, however, we also display the original CAT-allocated PID in red, below the LT-allocated PID, which is in black.
