OPTICON 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.
