Some minor remarks

Some Minor Remarks

  • Please send an e-mail to Science Operation Division Chief terada (@naoj.org) with CCs to nishimura and masa if you ask to add or change targets.

  • We ask all the MOIRCS MOS users to provide time (~1 hour) to take pre-images for the next MOS users. We will consult this issue with SAC soon.

  • No TOO for Keck-Subaru exchanged time (5 nights)
