With the release of the telescope schedule, the preparation of Service Mode (SM) observations (Phase 2) starts. The deadline for the submission of the Phase 2 material for Period 105 observations is 6 February 2020.

Detailed information on Phase 2 observation preparation can be found here. Paranal users are reminded to use the web application p2 for Phase 2 preparation. The "cousin" of p2 for La Silla is p2ls and must be used for preparation of observations. Users of La Silla telescopes can refer to the guidelines on the p2 help webpage.

Feedback on Phase 2 tools and documentation is welcome. Users can contribute to further improvements by sending an e-mail to the User Support Department (USD). Users should also e-mail USD if they require assistance with their Phase 2 preparations.
