PATT Call for Proposals for the Liverpool Telescope
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 2019A (1st Jan 2019 – 31st Aug 2019). 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 Tuesday 9th October 2018.
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 unforseen targets-of-opportunity and can be applied for via a simple web form. More details can be found here: http://telescope.livjm.ac.uk/PropInst/Reactive/.
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:
