This page contains brief summaries of 2dF observing for each run, with links to more complete observing logs. Hours listed are for 15 mins before the end of twilight to 15 mins after the end of twilight, which is the usual extent of observing time (although some calibrations will be taken outside of these).

A blank template of the observing log is here. Please make a copy and fill it in during your observations, then add a link to this page. You should also make a pdf copy of the observing log and store it to data central storage: https://cloud.datacentral.org.au in the folder /teamdata/Hector/2dF/log/
