Gemini North Semester 2011B

PDF Version

The semester calendar shows multi-instrument queue nights, scheduled classical runs and engineering or commissioning blocks. Instruments potentially usable on queue nights are
indicated by the colored-horizontal bands (see color key below). Note: Rapid ToO PIs should always check the "what's available now" pages that are linked from the contents list for
the most up-to-date information. Scheduled classical runs are indicated in the instrument's row by the last characters of the GN-2011B- program ID number.
Engineering or commissioning that involves one or more instruments is shown in the relevant instrument row(s). Of the order of 4 engineering nights will be scheduled in queue.
New and full moon dates are shown.
