Classical Schedule : Semester 2008A

The table below summarises the classically-scheduled programs that have been awarded time on Gemini North and South, as well as programs from the Gemini community awarded Exchange time on Keck and Subaru. Jump directly to the schedule for:

Each Gemini program has been assigned a Contact Scientist (CS) who is the point of contact between the Observatory and the Principal Investigator. Instructions for Gemini North visiting observers and Gemini South visiting observers are available.

The columns in the table are:
Date: Scheduled observing night(s), local time, for the Gemini telescopes, or number of nights awarded for Keck and Subaru.
Allocated programs: Gemini reference number (note that this is different from any internal National TAC reference number) and Principal Investigator (PI) for scheduled program, or PI and Partner for Keck and Subaru.
Instrument: name of the instrument(s).
Title: the title of the program.
