The observation time of the Perek 2-m telescope is allocated on the basis of the collected observing nights requests by the head of the stellar physics department or by the trustworthy persons choosen by the head.
Currently, the resposible persons for the time allocation are Tiina Liimets and Marek Skarka.
If observing nigth requests require specific dates/Moon phase, it should be stated in the proposal with a brief explanation. If a conflict of interest occurs, it will be solved case by case.
After the first schedule is released, based on a “first requested, first taken" style, additionally it will be possible to ask for the nights that will stay free.
Currently, the entire observing time of the Perek 2-m telescope is allocated to the regular observation programs of the members of the department. The observing nights requests from all
non-members of the stellar physics department should be sent directly to the head of the department Brankica Kubátová.
