Planning an observing run
Travel support for European astronomers is possible through the Radionet Transnational Access program.
If you as observer or PI have special requirements or questions, do not hesitate to ask your Astronomer on duty.
A project computer account will be created in advance, so you can already update your catalogs or observing files
Pooled observations have to be prepared by the PI. Instructions how to do this can be found on our bolometer pool observing page and the HERA pool observing page and HERA pool instructions.
