With the release of the La Silla Paranal telescopes schedule, the Phase 2 preparation for runs scheduled in Service Mode starts. The deadline for the submission of the Phase 2 material for Period 111 is Thursday, 2 March 2023.
The Service Mode Guidelines provide detailed information about Phase 2 material preparation with the web application p2, and the instrument overview table provides quick links to user manuals, tools and p2 tutorials for individual instruments.
The User Support Department at ESO offers assistance in the preparation of the Phase 2 material for Service Mode runs. On top of the material from previous Users Workshops that include hands-on observations preparation videos, the USD staff is available to arrange individual meetings upon requests. The goal of these meetings is to get acquainted with the Phase 2 tools, and to help you start preparing your specific Phase 2 material.
If you have been granted time in P111 and you are interested in an individual meeting, please contact us before 10 February by replying to the email/operations helpdesk ticket you have received from your support astronomer to arrange the meeting. If you are unsure who to contact, please use the contact form on this page.
