Important notes for 13A applicants:

* A call for Large Programs will NOT be made in Semester 13A.
We expect significant down-time in 13A while commissioning HERMES and
anticipate the next call for Large Programs will be no earlier than
Semester 13B.

* Long-term proposals requesting<  50 nights in total are still
accepted. Please contact the ATAC Secretary, Helen Woods
(hmw - at - aao.gov.au) well in advance of submitting this kind of proposal.

* The number of available AAT nights for 13A is approximately:
Bright: 33, Grey: 32 and Dark: 61.

This is the current best estimate based on instrument needs. However the
actual numbers may vary between now and the final telescope schedule.
