Call for Proposals (Key Project and Regular) to use the LCOGT 1m & 2m telescope facilities
Semester dates and deadline
The 2015A semester (for regular proposals) runs from 2015 April 1 to 2015 September 30 UTC.
The 2015A & B semesters (for key project proposals) run from 2015 April 1 to 2016 March 31 UTC.
Proposals should be submitted by 9 Feb 2015, 23:59 UTC.
The facilities available through this call include the nine 1m telescopes and two 2m (Faulkes) telescopes in the LCOGT network. Approximately 4000 hours of 1m time and 700 hours of 2m time will be allocated by LCOGT in 2014B. Currently, three of the 1m telescopes (at CTIO) are instrumented with Sinistro imagers, while the other 1m telescopes are instrumented with SBIG imagers. We are in the process of replacing the SBIGs with Sinistros. The 2m telescopes are instrumented with Merope and Spectral imagers and FLOYDS low-dispersion spectrographs.
Note that instruments other than the standard imagers and FLOYDS spectrographs (listed above) will only be supported on a best-effort basis.
All proposals received will be mediated by an LCOGT Telescope Allocation Committee (TAC). The purpose of this note is to notify those who are eligible ...
