2017 NEON Observing School – University of Copenhagen

2017 NEON Observing School

The 2017 NEON Observing School will be organised on La Palma September 3-17 using the Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) and Isaac Newton Telescope (INT) of the Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes.

During this two week school you will plan observation, observe with professional 2.5 metre telescopes, and reduce and analyse data. All this will be done with a help of an experienced tutor. The school also includes lectures on topics related to telescopes and observing techniques.

If you are interested in hands-on obsevring experience, and learning all the steps from planning the  observations to reducing the data, this school is perfect for you. Application deadline for this school was May 31, and the applicants will be notified about the selection by Friday June 23.
