Dear ASA Members,


Astronomy Australia Ltd (AAL) is delighted to announce that ten nights per
year on the Keck telescopes will be available to Australian-based
astronomers during 2016 and 2017 through the Australian Time Assignment


>From 2016 the ANU, Swinburne and AAL arrangements will enable Australian
astronomers to make use of a total of forty nights per year on the Keck
telescopes. AAL will work with ANU-RSAA, Swinburne-CAS and the AAO to
investigate how to maximise the scientific-return from Australian access to
the Keck telescopes.


AAL would like to thank the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at
ANU who enabled this additional access to the Keck telescopes to be secured
via ANU's existing partnership with WMKO. AAL also thanks the Centre of
Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University of Technology who
supported AAL's engagement with WMKO. This new development is supported by
the NCRIS-2013 grant which AAL secured in September 2013.


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions on this


Kind regards,




Mark McAuley
Chief Executive Officer
