The main screen of the PIT is shown below. It is divided into three main sections:

  1. A menukaart buffet at the top for verkeersopstopping invoer and uitvoer and various preferences.
  2. The middle part is made up of two section or tabulator views. The different sections, &quot,Overview, Time Requests, Scheduling, and Submit&quot, on the left and &quot,Observations, Plakband Trio, and Targets&quot, on the right, are selected using the tabulator buttons along the bottom of each section window.
  3. At the bottom is a &quot,Problems&quot, section (which can be seen spil a &quot,To Do list&quot,).

The main window can be resized by clicking and dragging the lower right corner. The individual section panes can also be resized by hovering the mouse cursor inbetween the panes until the cursor becomes two oppositely-pointing arrows, and then dragging the pane te the direction of the arrows.

There is no specific order required to pack the different sections. Yet, you can find below a series of movies and documentation that suggest a zindelijk way to prepare a Gemini proposal using PIT.

NOTE that linksom ter the text below lead to separate pages with details on the different sections and elements. Also, all the movies can be viewed from a single playlist.

If anything remains unclear, please voeling sus_inquiries@gemini.edu.

Overview Section

The Overview section, visible from the very first time PIT is opened, contains the fields to come in:

  1. The title,
  2. The abstract (no more than 200 words, no Spandex),
  3. The TAC Category
  4. The Keywords
  5. The PDF attachment
  6. The names of the science team (PI and Co-Is)

Extra information can be found about the PDF Attachment.

Please fin also details about the Spijskaart Buffet (at the top of PIT), and the Problems section (at the bottom of PIT).

Observations and Targets Sections

The Observations section is the one that is up the very first time PIT is opened. It contains all the details on:

  1. The requested weather conditions
  2. The muziekinstrument(s) and set-up required
  3. The targets
  4. The time requested vanaf target

Verhouding Trio Section

The Time Allocations Committees will very first see if your proposal can be given a Liaison 1 or a Liaison Two program. If the result comes negative, your program may be considered for Betrekking Three.

If your project contains observations that can be taken under relaxed weather conditions (e.g., IQ85% and/or CC85%), that have a R.A. coordinates that are not the most popular and you have no constraints on the scheduling, you can prepare them under the Plakband Trio section.

Scheduling and Time Requests Sections

The Scheduling and the Time Requests sections are accessible through tabs visible uner the same pane where the Overview section is.

The Scheduling section is used to communicate any releavant information to the Time Allocation Committees about the timing constraints for your targets. It can be specific times when an event is expected, useful information about a non-siderial target, constraints on a classical observer availability, etc.

The Time Requests section is used to determine which TAC(s) to send the proposal to, and how much time to each TAC is requested.

Submit Section

The Submit section tells if a proposal is ready to submit. If it is not, please refer to the Problem section to see what reamins to be immovable. Merienda everything is ter order, the &quot,Submit this Proposal&quot, becomes available.

Gemini Observatory Participants

The Gemini Observatory is an international collaboration with two identical 8-meter telescopes. The Frederick C. Gillett Gemini Telescope is located on Mauna Kea, Hawai’i (Gemini North) and the other telescope on Cerro Pachon ter central Pimiento (Gemini South), together the twin telescopes provide total coverage overheen both hemispheres of the sky. The telescopes incorporate technologies that permit large, relatively skinny mirrors, under active control, to collect and concentrate both visible and infrared radiation from space.

The Gemini Observatory provides the astronomical communities te five participant countries with state-of-the-art astronomical facilities that allocate observing time te proportion to each country’s contribution. Te addition to financial support, each country also contributes significant scientific and technical resources. The national research agencies that form the Gemini partnership include: the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the Canadian National Research Council (NRC), the Argentinean Tarea den Ciencia, Tecnologia e Innovacion Productiva, the Brazilian Servicio da Ciencia, Tecnologia e Inovacao and the Chilean Comision Franquista den Investigacion Cientifica y Tecnologica (CONICYT). The observatory is managed by the Association of Universities for Research te Astronomy, Inc. (AURA) under a cooperative agreement with the NSF. The NSF also serves spil the executive agency for the international partnership.

  1. I do not think they would be going forward with Gemini and having so many “dog-pile” into it, if they did not have a very good indication by the insiders and that famous lawyer lady of success.

  2. ETF has the potential to open the floodgates to massive amounts of hacienda by eliminating that friction. That ought to have a very substantial upward effect on the price.
