GeMS/GSAOI programs selected for System Verification Observations

2013 March 5 - The status of SV programs has been updated. Eleven of the thirteen selected GeMS/GSAOI SV programs were completed. One of the program is nearly completion. Only one program was not observed because of the lack of suitable guide stars.

The table below summarizes the programs which have been selected by the GeMS/GSAOI Science team and approved by the Gemini Science and Technology Advisory Committee for GeMS/GSAOI System Verification Observations.

The total available time for GeMS/GSAOI SV is ~60 hours, divided into four groups.
