APEX Visitor Instruments

ESO is offering the possibility to bring a Visitor Instrument to be used with APEX. This opportunity for Visitor Instruments (VI) is offered to permit innovative observations by instrument teams using their own stand-alone instruments. VI are free from a substantial fraction of the requirements imposed on the fully automated APEX facility instruments.

The APEX VI will be installed on the VI focus located in the Nasmyth A cabin of APEX. All VI's need to comply with the Interface Control Document, which can be obtained from the ESO APEX Project Scientist (Carlos De Breuck) or the APEX station manager (Gundolf Wieching).

Teams that want to propose the use of their VI should follow these instructions.
