Preparing to Observe

Details about the OT and how to use it to generate scripts and plan your observing program are described in the OT Guide and Script Preparation section.  Script Preparation has been done historically using the modsTools provided by OSU and follow the method outlined in the MODS Observing Scripts Manual.  Although users may continue to use these tools, we strongly encourage users to utilize the OT for its added flexibility and benefits beyond script generations.

Before arriving at the telescope, ensure scripts are prepared and checked.  Please provide finder chart for all targets.
