Current instrument status
Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) is available under a "shared-risk" mode in S17B.
Suprime-Cam is opening until S17A under a "shared-risk" mode and will not be available since S17B. No guiding available for Suprime-Cam in S17A, due to serious problem of the auto guider. The maximum exposure time should be less than 900 s to avoid the tracking error.
A new PI instrument, CHARIS, is opened since S17A. CHARIS is operated with SCExAO. The instrument exchange between CHARIS/SCExAO and HiCIAO/SCExAO can be easily done during the same observation night. VAMPIRES can be operated simultaneously with HiCIAO/SCExAO or CHARIS/SCExAO NIR observations.
Kyoto3DII is re-opened in S17A and will not be available in S17B.
General enquiries may be directed to Dr. Tae-Soo Pyo ().
