III. OBSERVING CATALOGS

Hectospec/chelle observers are expected to submit their configurations to the CfA at least 10 days before the Hectospec queue begins, which may be well in advance of their own dates on the mountain. Details of this process may be found at www.cfa.harvard.edu/mmti/hectospec/hecto_software_manual.htm

Observers for other PI instruments are expected to prepare catalogs of their observing lists prior to their run and to submit them directly to the MMT well in advance of their scheduled observations. The MMT catalog submission page can be found at hacksaw.mmto.org/catalogs


IV. Observing Requirements

Note: Observers are strongly encouraged to obtain evening flats rather than morning flats. Morning calibrations may require additional MMT staff support.
* Do you require twilight flats?       If "yes",
* Do you require morning calibrations (other than flats)?
If yes, please specify


V. SPECIAL REQUESTS/COMMENTS

(e.g. transportation-if still needed after reviewing our website information, computer requirements, IP addresses required, etc.)


ARIES OBSERVERS: Please contact Don McCarthy two months in advance regarding filters and special software requests (dithering, detector readout, etc.)
