On this page you will find all the supplementary information you will need for making an application to LCOGT for use of the telescope network. We have a provided a LaTex template and style file for use in applying for time as well as an exposure time calculator.
Please use this template file for making all submissions. The file template.tex has custom elements which you will need to uncomment to activate. For example:
In this case the option bessellB is not commented out and will appear on the final proposal (and Halpha is commented out, so will not appear).
There are many options already included in the file to assist with formatting the proposal.
You can download the template, style file, example pdf and all the images that were used to make them below:

We have provided this tool to assist you with making calculations of the time that you request. Please note that the Calculator will allow you to select 2m, 1m and 0.4m telescopes. In this round of applications we will only be accepting submissions for 2m time.
You can access it at this address: http://lcogt.net/tools/exposuretime
We also have made details of our filter sets available to assist your applications.
Your final proposal document must be submitted in PDF format. We require you to submit it through our Observing Proposal Portal.
You will need to register for an account on the Observing Proposal portal to be able to submit a proposal.
