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.

 

Gemini data reduction software on MacOS 10.12 (Sierra)

We currently anticipate completing integration and testing of our data reduction software with AstroConda in November this year. In the meantime, our recommended platform is still Ureka 1.5.1 or 1.5.2.

Volcanoes on Io: Long-term Tracking with Adaptive Optics

Gemini North and W.M. Keck images of Io at different near-infrared wavelengths; the name of the filter is indicated in the black box at the start of each section. The bright spots are thermal emissions from Io’s myriad volcanoes. Note the increasing number of hot spots detected at longer wavelengths, i.e. towards the bottom of the figure.

Sensitivity

GPI Contrast and sensitivity 

Achieved sensitivity is a function of many parameters, including contrast, inner working distance, brightness of the central star (if any), observing mode (dithered, sky-offset, sky-rotation), and, weather conditions. 

Contrast as function of I-magnitude of the star

April 2017 Call for Proposals

Gemini North and South are accepting proposals for the Fast Turnaround (FT) program. Here, we give information specific to this proposal cycle. Please see the other FT pages - particularly the rules - for general information about the program. FT-specific proposal templates must now be used for all FT proposals; see the "PIT information" section below. The revised 2017A PIT  must be used
