Observing proposals are invited for the Effelsberg 100-meter Radio Telescope of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR). The Effelsberg telescope is one of the World’s largest fully steerable instruments. This extreme- precision antenna is used exclusively for research in radio astronomy, both as a stand-alone instrument as well as for Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) experiments. Access to the telescope is open to all qualified astronomers. Use of the instrument by scientists from outside the MPIfR is strongly encouraged. The institute can provide support and advice on project preparation, observation, and data analysis also under the RadioNet Transnational Access programme. The directors of the institute make observing time available to applicants based on the recommendations of the Program Committee for Effelsberg (PKE), which judges the scientific merit (and technical feasibility) of the observing requests.
The submission deadline is June 1, 2017 15.00 UT. Read more
