Reminders about Observing Opportunities

Richard Green

As detailed here and in the Observational Programs section, a number of enhanced or changed observing opportunities are now available at KPNO. Three superb infrared instruments are available for use on the 4-m and 2.1-m--SQIID, FLAMINGOS, and Phoenix. As reported previously, ONIS will no longer be offered, and IRIM is available only for narrow-band work or as a backup for scheduling conflicts. The WIYN queue is no longer in operation for the majority of programs; synoptic and target-of-opportunity programs may still be proposed, as well as observations for a "2-hour" queue. The 0.9-m and Coudé Feed telescopes are not open for proposal-based access. As a reminder, the WIYN integral field unit, DensePak, provides an alternate to Hydra for the bench spectrograph. Good luck with your proposals!
