ESO time granted for P111

For our observing needs we require the largest and the most modern facilities in both hemispheres (to obtain data for both our Southern and Northern galaxies in our sample). For this reason we have managed to achieve time at both GTC and ESO telescopes.

For the period P111 of ESO we managed to get additional time (~18h) to extend our data collection on three dwarf galaxies. Using the multislit mode of FORS2 we will observe IC 1613, Pegasus DIG, and Phoenix Dwarf. With these observations we are also putting to a test the machine-learning classifier we developed already for this purpose, as the target selection will be based on its predictions.

We are now preparing the the Phase-2 material to get the preimaging first before progressing with the actual mask designing.
