Remote Observations

Unattended remote observing with the CSO is permitted under the following conditions:

Remote observations are supported only with the 230/460 GHz sidecab receiver, with Sharc II and Sharp, with Zspec, and with Music. Support for other instruments, if possible, is experimental.

Hardware changes are only possible during the day when the technicians are at the telescope. Please request any hardware changes no later than 15 HST.

In case of problems during observations, CSO staff are available but can provide remote assistance only. In case of an insuperable malfunction, observations will cease for the night.

If you have any questions or suggestions about this policy, please contact the CSO Manager.
