P77 Call for proposals
Monday 5 September 2005

The ESO call for proposals is now opened for P77 (1-Apr-2006 to 30-Sep-2006) with a deadline for submission the 30 September 2005 at 12:00 (noon) CET. AMBER is offered essentially in the same configuration as in P76:

The only modes offered will be the medium resolution K band (MR-K) and the low resolution K band (LR-HK), with a spectral resolution of approximately 1500 and 35, respectively. In LR-HK mode, the K band will be acquired simultaneously with the H band: however the quality of the H data cannot be guaranteed at present. In MR-K mode, the limit on DIT will translate to a maximum of 20 spectral channels available, covering approximately 0.04 microns.


At this point, AMBER is offered with conservative performance estimates. The limiting magnitude will be K=4 in MR-K, and K=7 in LR-HK. .../...
