The Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) has issued a Call for Shared Time Proposals in semester 2022B (1 August 2022 – 31 January 2023).

Only astronomers and researchers affiliated with Partner institutions can be listed on proposals requesting shared time. Partners for 2022B are: the Australian National University, Macquarie University, Monash University, University of Melbourne, University of New South Wales, University of Queensland, University of Southern Queensland, University of Swinburne, University of Sydney, University of Tasmania and Western Sydney University.

Night Availability: There are up to 12 dark nights, 18 grey nights and 38 bright nights available for shared time proposals.

Instrument Availability: Available AAT instruments include: 2dF+AAOmega, 2dF+HERMES, KOALA and Veloce. Veloce was provisionally accepted in 2020 and will be offered on a shared-risk basis until it reaches full acceptance.
