TARGET OF OPPORTUNITY

Target of Opportunity (ToO) proposals are welcome at the SRT and can be submitted to the SRT Officer-in-Charge Ettore Carretti (carretti AT oa-cagliari.inaf.it). The observations at the SRT are not conducted in service-mode and, if the project is approved, it will up to the proposing team to organise and conduct the observations.
