The weather has taken a turn for the worse, and it looks like we won't get any more data on the sky this week. We are ready to test a new, improved version of Daniel's guiding software, and Andrey has been working on collecting all the instrument and telescope data with each exposure to put into the headers. This is not real exciting stuff, and I, for one, am eager to see the end of the monsoon.
One new item for prospective pODI proposers is the ODI web site (still under construction, but you can see the layout and some of the content at http://www.wiyn.org/ODI/wiynodi.html) and, in particular, the page we have put together to tell you everything you need to know to write a proposal (http://www.wiyn.org/ODI/Observe/wiynoditools.html). The call for proposals will be out around September 1, and we will update this page as we get more information. One graphic I put together for this page is the layout of pODI with the formats, sizes, and gaps indicated.
