Most GOs will find that they can analyze their data most efficiently at their home institution, using the STScI Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org
) to resolve issues that are not clear from the available documentation. However, observers who are new to HST may find it useful to visit STScI for 2-3 days to learn how to deal with their data. Also, in cases of particularly complex or difficult programs, observers may consider visiting STScI before the Phase II deadline.
Visits can be arranged through the STScI Help Desk (see Section 1.5
). Observers who visit STScI will be assisted by STScI staff to the extent that resources permit.
