Observing with SOAR

Note on time in Chile.

On Aug 13, 2016 Chile switched back to standard time: UT-3h.  As usual, afternoon calibrations can be done starting at 4pm. Please make sure to coordinate in advance with your Telescope Operator and/or local support staff. In particular, contact your support scientist and Telescope Operator if your program has special needs for the afternoon calibrations.
