NOAO Guidelines for Using Gemini's Phase-I Tool


Investigators wishing to propose for the US share of time on the Gemini telescopes must use Gemini's Phase-I Tool (PIT) . The PIT is a downloadable application that is used to provide "front-page" information including the title, abstract, and contact info for the investigators. Instrument configuration details, target coordinates, and observing constraints are also included in PIT, and are carried over into the Phase-II process for accepted proposals. "Essay" sections are included in a single PDF attachment, which can be prepared using an MS Word or LaTeX template. Detailed help pages and video tutorials are available on the Gemini web site.

Please consider these suggestions and guidelines when preparing your proposal:
