XMM-Newton Users Handbook update for AO-16

The XMM-Newton Users Handbook (UHB)  has been updated to version 2.14 in
preparation for the next  Announcement of Opportunity (AO-16) which will
open shortly.

The UHB contains information  on the instrumentation on board XMM-Newton
and  serves  as  the   main  technical  support  document  for  proposal
preparation, based  on which potential  XMM-Newton users can  assess the
technical feasibility of their planned observations.

The XMM-Newton Users Handbook is available on-line at


Alternatively, pdf and postscript versions  of the UHB can be downloaded
from the "XMM-Newton Proposer's Info and Manuals" portal at
