IGRINS - Call for Queue Request for DCT (Nov 2017 ~ Jan 2018)

IGRINS (Immersion GRating Infrared Spectrograph) is a high-resolution (R ~ 45,000), near-infrared (H and K simultaneously) spectrograph developed by Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute and the University of Texas at Austin. From September 2017, IGRINS will be visiting Discovery Channel Telescope (DCT), operated by Lowell Observatory, for about 5 months (until Jan 2018). During this visit, we anticipate ~15 queue nights for UT and Korean astronomers before before the end of January 2018 when IGRINS leaves the DCT. Science requests by Korean astronomers are welcome.

For this year, we only solicit queue request. If you want to propose a program larger than one night that does not fit in the queue, please contact the IGRINS team at KASI for discussion.
