Oschin/P48 Telescope Request
The Oschin Telescope is operated as a service-observing instrument, with individual observations
obtained according to scheduling queues established by the telescope manager to achieve maximum efficiency.
Principal Investigators are not at the telescope during observing.
The Oschin Telescope is used for direct imaging with the ZTF camera.
Use the table below to enter the desired observing time (in hours) per month.
As a rough guide, 6.0 hours of on-target observing time is equivalent to one night.
