2017A Programs and Schedule Announced

The Gemini 2017A observing programs have now been announced. Notification emails to successful PIs were sent today, December 15 2016. Please check the schedules page for more information. Note that the new Observing Tool must be used to access and update 17A programs.

Untangling a Complex Young Stellar System

The top panel shows the spectrum of KH 15D during its "bright" phase, when the amount of direct starlight was greatest. The middle spectrum ("intermediate" phase) was taken when star B was just below the edge of the ring. Both spectra in the bottom panel were obtained during "faint" phases from two different cycles, when both stars were near periastron and the contribution from starlight was minimized.

2017A OT Released

The 2017A Gemini Observing Tool is now available for download. This update is required to access the Gemini Observing Databases.

The Installation Instructions are linked off of the Observing Tool web page, and we recommend that everyone download their programs from the databases rather than import from saved XMLs.

False-color image of SPT-CL J0546–5345 at z = 1:067. Gemini GeMS/GSAOI Ks (this work) = red, HST ACS F814W = green, HST ACS F606W = blue. The red polygon shows the approximate sky coverage of the GSAOI pointings. PSF stars are indicated by white circles. The star near the top of the image with two circles is a binary star. The inset at lower left is a zoom-in of the cluster core.

Instrument Upgrades: Teams seeking collaboration

Gemini encourages collaborations and will provide a forum for those seeking additional partners to complete a team for this work. Groups interested in Instrument Upgrades who may lack the expertise needed to complete the work should submit a notice of intent and use this forum to find additional partners for the work.
