Gemini South Semester 2012B

PDF Version

The semester calendar shows multi-instrument queue nights, scheduled classical runs and engineering or commissioning blocks. Instruments potentially usable on queue nights are
indicated by the colored-horizontal bands (see color key below). Note: ToO PIs should always check the "what's available now" pages that are linked from the contents list for
the most up-to-date information. Scheduled classical runs are indicated by the last characters of the program ID, e.g., "C-1".
Engineering or commissioning blocks are shown across all rows as no queue execution is expected those nights.  
New and full moon dates are shown on the left; weekends and holidays are indicated with red numbers above each month.

Notes:
Shutdown dates confirmed, include back on sky eng nights Aug 10-11
instrument change dates are approximate and may shift in either direction
"x" signifies no queue backup during classical runs after the first night (as no staff observer is scheduled)
