TAUVEX Guest Investigator Program
This is the page for scientists wishing to plan their observations with TAUVEX. Here we put out the documents and available tools (in the form of tables, graphs and online software) to help scientists to plan their observations with TAUVEX.
We would like to encourage the interested scientists to write their proposals and/or letters of intent (still possible at this stage) to us. As per our current policy, the successful proposer(s) are guaranteed exclusive right to data for a period of one year after the observation date, provided they have joined the TAUVEX Science Team.
In order to facilitate the preparation of proposals, we suggest the strategy, which is depicted in Proposal Checklist.
Strong observational constraintsthe necessity to avoid Sun at 90° and only a scanning modelimit the observable time. The solar straylight also limits the observable magnitudes by increasing the backgound noise and contributing to the S/N ratio, which results in differential limiting magnitude values over the sky and over the year. Observable Windows and Limiting Magnitude Maps are graphically presented on the Sky Visibility pages.
