NST Call for Obs Proposals 2016<

The New Jersey Institute of Technology announces the availability of a limited amount of observing time to the solar community for its 1.6-m, off-axis New Solar Telescope (NST) and associated instrumentation. The telescope allocation committee (TAC) plans to accept outside proposals for session 1 (2016 May 1 - Jun 30), which are due Friday, Mar. 4, 2016. Potential applicants are encouraged to include a BBSO/NJIT scientist as a collaborator in the proposal to facilitate proposal preparation, observations, and data analysis. Please see the description of NST and its instrumentation at NJIT_Ground-Based_Solar_Observatories.pdf

At this time, we are seeking expressions of interest in order to determine the likely level of response. Please send inquiries to haimin.wang at njit.edu.
