Observations

We now have more complete information about the observations for participants in Astronomy On-Line.

The following list shows which proposals have been carried out at the participating observatories. The data files can be retrieved from the local URL's:

Unfortunately, some programmes have not been carried out. As is to be expected in Europe in November, the weather was not very collaborative in some places. In other cases spectroscopic observations were requested for which we regret no instrument was available. A number of proposals were received towards the end of the observing period and although still accepted, most of these could not be carried out as the required telescope was no longer available.

The following list gives an overview of the observations, where they were made and where the files are available:
