On these pages we summarise and coordinate our Photometric and Spectroscopic observing runs for the upcoming semesters. This page will be amended as more follow-up runs are scheduled.

2014B Observing Time Awarded

The total amounts of time awarded for each semester (so far) is given below. Note that these come from a variety of proposals and awards, submitted by a number of individuals. While these nights should be seen as in a sense pooled, the coordination of the different programmes will be the responsibility of the individual PI's.

Observing Rota

Note that the UK-led runs can be supported by PATT for a maximum of two observers. The NL-led nights will be coordinated by *** and ***. There is **no** PATT funding available for these funds unless no one from the NL community can participate, in which case funding for one observer may be available (**TBD**).
