Gemini South Semester 2007B

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 coloured-horizontal bands (see color key below). Note: 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 by the instrument name (or an abbrieviated version) and the last characters of the GS-2007B- program
ID number. Engineering or commissioning that involves one or more instruments is shown in the relevant instrument row(s). New and full moon dates are shown.

*GS-2007B-C-202: 3 night classical run consisting of 2 1/2-nights followed by 2 full nights
NICI notes: NICI commissioning and campaign science blocks are tentative and may be re-scheduled as needed. It is expected that NICI will be mounted on a side port, and so will not require removal of T-ReCS.
