60-inch Telescope Telescope Request

The 60-inch telescope is operated as a service-observing instrument, with individual observations obtained according to scheduling queues establshed by the telescope manager to achieve maximum efficiency. Principal Investigators are not at the telescope during observing.

  1. The principal instrument at the 60-inch is the SED Machine..
  2. Use the buttons below the requests to mark the lunations as (P) Preferred and enter the on-target observing time (in hours); do not include target acquisition time, time for calibrations or other overhead functions.
  3. If the observations could be made in other lunations, use the buttons to select A (Acceptable), as appropriate. Leave the hrs space blank.
  4. As a rough guide, 4.5 hours of on-target observing time is equivalent to one night.
