AO-8 Long Observation Program (part I)

Dear ASCA users,

Please find below the first half of a year of the ASCA observation schedule 
that is based on the ASCA AO-8 Long Observation Program (targets designated 
as LOP) for the interval between February 13 and September 6. 

Scheduling is very tight and flexibility is very small due to small number of
targets with long exposure time for each. This make it difficult to get a feasible
solution under the conditions of (1) target -sun angle constraint, (2) STT moon
constraint,  and policies of (3) highly ranked targets earlier , and (4)  a single 
observation for one target. Inevitably, we divided the IRAS 13224-3809 
observation  and Cas A calibration each into two pointings. Thus  at present
we have successfully produce the schedule only  first half of the AO-8 period,
which is now released. After carefull investigation we will release later the 
second half of a year of the AO-8 observation schedule when we get a feasible 

All data belong to this LOP are released public immediately when the telemetry 
data are retrieved and processed, i.e, no PI of the successful proposals has right 
ofexclusive use of data. Every PIs and their collaborators, on the other hand, are
expected to take resposibility for conducting their own observations by themselves 
under assistant of ISAS operation experts.
