Observation Preparation

This section contains instructions for configuring NICI at phase II. It is organised as follows:

The easiest way to develop a Phase II program is to use the predefined observations in the OT Library.The OT Library contains examples and templates of all typical Geminiobservations and should be the basis of your phase II (the example bestmatching your desired observation can be copied and pasted into yourprogram in the OT, and then modified to your requirements). The bestpractice is to use (or at least review) the library version for thecurrent observing semester. This way, updates or changes to observationprotocols will automatically be accounted for in new Phase II programs.Notes and descriptions appear directly in the library sequences to helpobservers understand how to best use the instruments.
