Science Verification of CRIRES+
No. 187 (June 2022), 17–24
Science Verification (SV) observations with CRIRES+ were obtained between 15 and 19 September 2021. The SV team performed the observations jointly on Paranal and in Garching. The weather conditions were mostly good except for the last night when thick clouds prevailed for most of the night requiring adjustments for some observations. Most of the planned SV observing programme could be accomplished. Of 57 submitted proposals, 23 observing programmes were scheduled for a total of 47 hours of observations. The allocation assumed four observing nights (of ten hours each) and included a slight oversubscription. Sixteen projects could be completed, including the eight top priority programmes. Three programmes could only be partially executed, and four runs were not observed. Some of the first science results are presented.
