Call for Australian Subaru Proposals in Semester 2018A

Picture

Proposals for Australian time on the Subaru 8.2m telescope on Mauna Kea in Semester 2018A (1 Feb – 31 July 2018) are due by 1:00pm AEST, Thursday 7 September 2017.

The Subaru 8.2 metre telescope located on the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii is operated by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ). In December 2016 Astronomy Australia Ltd negotiated a new collaborative program with NAOJ, providing 5 nights in Semester 2018A and 5 nights in Semester 2018B for the Australian community on the Subaru telescope. Australia will also make technical contributions to the Subaru program, and Japanese astronomers will get access to 4 nights on the AAT in 2018. Australian access to the Subaru telescope has been enabled through the Australian Government’s National Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).

Further information about Australian access to Subaru can be found: Subaru ITSO web pages. Please direct any questions to the International Telescopes Support Office ([email protected]) at the AAO.
