GTC time for 2023A semester granted

We have a successful record of observing proposals with GTC to observe a number of Northern Galaxies for the ASSESS project. Although we got time in 2022A semester (~25 hours with OSIRIS) we did not manage to obtain the observations. The instrument was offered on a shared risk mode as they it was moving from the Nasmyth to Cassegrain focus and various issues should be resolved.

We submitted another proposal for the 2023A semester and we managed to get not only the time we asked for the galaxies we are missing but additional ~7h to observe another set of dwarf galaxies. In total we were awarded 31.5h for MOS OSIRIS observations.

We are preparing now the OBs for the preimaging in order to properly proceed with the mask design.
