If you have been allocated observing time and are scheduled to observe for your partner run, you have the choice to observe
- at the telescope on Mt Graham (3200m elevation - mountain road - cramped quarters - you cook...), or
- in the LBTO remote observing room on the University of Arizona campus (food court close by - you pick your lodging in town - you interact with science staff)
Follow this link to learn more about preparing your stay either in Tucson or on Mt Graham.
- Publishing science based on LBTO data
The LBTO requests that publications based on data obtained at the LBT include the following statement as a footnote to the title of the paper:
The LBT is an international collaboration among institutions in the United States, Italy and Germany. LBT Corporation partners are: The University of Arizona on behalf of the Arizona Board of Regents; Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica, Italy; LBT Beteiligungsgesellschaft, Germany, representing the Max-Planck Society, The Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam, and Heidelberg University; The Ohio State University, and The Research Corporation, on behalf of The University of Notre Dame, University of Minnesota and University of Virginia.
Authors may re-order the list of partners as appropriate to emphasize their primary affiliation, but please list all partners as above. Specific references for each instrument can be found on the individual instrument pages.
