Sharing Telescope Facilities with Other Observing Teams

Since living quarters and work spaces at the telescope are limited, you should leave the mountain as soon as possible at the end of your run, allowing, of course, for a reasonable period of rest. If you wish to continue the reduction of your data sets, you should do so at the ARO visiting astronomer's office. When two or more observing teams are sharing observing time, the team currently observing has priority to all telescope facilities, including computer usage. The other observing teams should endeavor to stay out of the control room and not interfere in any way with the ongoing observations. Unless one group of observers is declared the "prime observer'' on the telescope schedule, equipment changes needed for a program will be done at the beginning of that program's time.

Note that the possibility of multiple teams is why it is important to coordinate travel arrangements with Cathi Duncan, so that the vehicle and housing arrangements are clear.
