Scheduling Section

This is the top left panel of the PIT, when "Scheduling" is selected from the "Overview / Time Requests / Scheduling / Submit".

PIT scheduling tab

For queue-mode proposals you can specify optimal or synchronous (observations need to be coordinated with another telescope facility) dates. Optimal dates should be given only for programs that need observtions on specific dates, say to catch a particular eclipse, occultation, or other rare phenomenon. Gemini will then attempt to have those nights be queue nights if the program is allocated time. Queue proposals should not give impossible dates.

For classical-mode proposals you can identify dates when the proposal should or should not be scheduled. If the proposal is allocated time then these dates will be used to schedule the classical run.
