We continue to make progress restoring services at our Haleakala site after the Feb 9 storm. Our portable generator continues to provide power for our equipment. The two 0.4m telescopes resumed making science observations on the night of Feb 27. The FLOYDS spectrograph will resume science observations tonight.
We made two changes to the user portal this week:
- If you are a Co-I on a proposal, you will no longer see the list of Co-Is on the proposal's summary page. Only the PI of a proposal, who is responsible for coordinating the activities of all participants in the science program, will see the list of Co-Is and their email addresses.
- When composing an observation request on the portal's composition page, the target coordinates can be entered in decimal or in sexagesimal format. For both the RA and the DEC coordinate, if you enter a value in sexagesimal format, the decimal conversion will be displayed immediately below. If you enter a value in decimal format, the sexagesimal conversion will be displayed immediately below.
