Please note: a variety of instruments are normally available on the LT. However, users should check the Call for Proposals before requesting an instrument for an upcoming semester. There is of course a limited number of available ports on the backend of the telescope; not all instruments can be mounted at the same time.
Prospective users should also make use of the Exposure Time Calculator before preparing telescope proposals.
