ASCA weekly

Dear ASCA users:

As informed, ASCA AO-8 observation targets and exposure times are
modified for about 2000 ksec (see ASCA home page on Web). The
long-term observation timelime for the later half of AO-8 period from
August 2000 to February 2001 will be uploaded on the Web next week.
All the currently accepted AO-8 priority-A targets are on the schedule.
In addition we will be able to observe a few high ranked priority-B targets
during the period. On the basis of this long-term timeline, we will 
hereafter release short-term observation schedules of a unit of two weeks
to a month, each about a month ahead as was the case till AO-7.

Following, please find an ASCA observation  schedule for the period of
August 8 to August 20. Please contact Paul (Paul@astro.isas.ac.jp) and 
Chiho (chiho@astro.isas.ac.jp) if you have questions on the ASCA schedule.
Paul Hilton will leave ISAS in late July and Chiho Matsumoto will take over 
the ASCA scheduling task after then.

Best regards,
Fumiaki Nagase
