For Users of the Nobeyama 45-m Telescope Open Use Program
The basic observing mode is a remote operation.
So we offer the observation support by observatory staff remotely from Nobeyama.
Rules for the assistant are as follows:
- The NRO assistant will support only during the staff business hours of 9:00-17:00 JST, Monday through Friday (including national holidays).
- NRO recommends that observers learn basic operations with technical support from the NRO assistant so that they can conduct observations by themselves.
- To promote smooth open-use observations, the NRO assistant will help the observer at the 45-m telescope (the operation building and the antenna) as necessary.
- The scope of the support will be determined according to the skill and experience of the observer through discussions between the observer and the NRO assistant.
- Assistance will be provided by NRO staffs. When NRO staff serves as an assistant, he/she will see whether your observation is on the right track and you have basic operating skills. Once it is confirmed that you can conduct observations by yourself, the assistant may occasionally leave the operation building and work in the main building with the consent of the observers. The assistant will give you his/her phone number before leaving.
- The assistant on duty may have one-hour break during observation with the consent of the observers. We appreciate your understanding.
Rules for the suspension of observation are as follows:
- Maximum wind velocity: 20 m/s or greater
- Snow ...
- Bad Weather:
In the case of observation at 100 GHz, no good results can be expected under the following conditions:
If you are not an experienced observer, decide whether to abandon your observation.
- Maximum wind velocity: 10 m/s or greater
- System noise temperature: 1000 K or higher
