PATT Call for Proposals for the Liverpool Telescope

Semester 2020B

The Liverpool Telescope is a 2.0 metre fully robotic facility sited at Observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos, La Palma, Canary Islands. The Liverpool Telescope Time Allocation Committee is now accepting proposals for PATT time for observations in Semester 2020B (1st Jul
2020 – 28th Feb 2021). Full details of the telescope, instrumentation and proposal submission process (Phase 1) are available from:

The deadline for submission of proposals is 23:59 GMT on Friday 3rd April 2020.

Application via PATT is open to members of UK institutes, as well as non-UK applicants who are not eligible to apply for Liverpool Telescope time via other routes.

We would also like to remind our users of the routes to obtaining telescope time outside of the semesterly application process. PATT allocate 20 hours “A” time per semester to Reactive Time. This is time intended primarily for unforeseen targets-of-opportunity and can be applied for via a simple web form. More details can be found here:

We also offer ‘PriorityZ’ time, which is for long-term, queue filling programmes which are backup to the main science programme of the telescope. We would typically expect to approve a PriorityZ proposal for a period of two years. Again, this time can be applied for via a web form, and details can be found here:
