Visiting Observer Guide
Please read this document carefully as it contains important information pertaining to your visit to LCO.
Guidelines for Observers
The Magellan Telescopes are operated in a 100% "classical" mode where the visiting astronomer is physically present and responsible for data acquisition. The operations staff is not designed to provide significant support to visiting astronomers at night, so it is expected that observers will be experienced and self-sufficient. The following guidelines must therefore be strictly adhered to.
