SOFIA Observer's Handbook for Cycle 5
Download the PDF Version
The ''SOFIA Observer's Handbook for Cycle 5'' (hereafter the Observer's Handbook), provides information about SOFIA operations and the instruments that will be available for observations during Cycle 5. This document is the primary technical reference for astronomers who wish to submit a proposal in response to the SOFIA Cycle 5 Call for Proposals (CfP). The CfP document and the Observer's Handbook (along with the documents and websites explicitly referred to in it) should contain information sufficient for planning viable SOFIA observations.
