After Your Run


Emergency Accessing Your Data

As saving your data from each instrument is different we expect you to transfer all your data to a personal device (either to a storage key, a laptop or to a remote machine) before you leave the control room at the end of your last night. If for some reason you fail to do this or your data get corrupted, please contact Duane Gibson. However, we cannot guarantee that your data will be backed up.

Confidential Observer Report

After your run, you will receive an email request to complete a brief on-line Confidential Observer Report. Although not required, we appreciate your feedback on four items (telescope, instrument, staff, facilities) and any other areas on which you might wish to comment. Your feedback is important in helping us evaluate the performance of the Observatory and telescope.

Publishing Your Results

If you have results you would like us to advertise on our front page and social media accounts, please contact Joannah Hinz. All publications resulting from data collected at the MMTO should carry one of the following credit lines as a footnote to the paper's title:

  • Observations reported here were obtained at the MMT Observatory, a joint facility of the Smithsonian Institution and the University of Arizona.
