Target already being imaged for PI (Fred Walter).

Ken, what proposal proposal number is that?

(3663) Dirk Terrell — Dec. 6, 2022, 5:50 p.m.

The TAC is in favor of this proposal. Still awaiting word on which other project has BP Tau as a target.

(37929) Peter Bealo — Dec. 6, 2022, 6:42 p.m.

If the PI is already imaging it, don't waste your time with my proposal. No need to duplicate.

I searched the proposal targets and only noticed the PI imaging one of his other targets, not BP TAU. Perhaps I didn't look closely enough Sorry.


(3663) Dirk Terrell — Dec. 6, 2022, 6:50 p.m.

Yeah, Peter, we're still trying to figure out which project Ken is referring to. Stand by.

(4726) Kenneth Menzies — Dec. 6, 2022, 10:17 p.m.

Committed to NH and NM. This is in P195 which I update regularly in concert with Fred. I just added BPEC as a recipient of the images in vphot. Go for it if desired.

(37929) Peter Bealo — Dec. 7, 2022, 1:58 a.m.

WFM (Fred Walter)hasn't been adding data to the database in the last year. I'll at least do that.

(37929) Peter Bealo — Dec. 11, 2022, 4:43 p.m.


Why Sr and Si? I know NH has R and I filters. Is this to match what WFM is from NM?

(4726) Kenneth Menzies — Dec. 12, 2022, 2:32 p.m.

Yes, rather than creating a new plan, I just added you observer code to his plan.
