    Solving scheduling problems has long presented a challenge for computer scientists and operations researchers. The field continues to expand as researchers and practitioners examine ever more challe. This paper presents the greedy search technique used by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Science Planning and Scheduling System to automatically schedule HST activities on weekly calendars. Given a set of possible observations to schedule in a week, this technique determines the best time ordering of observations which would maximize the.

    Use Doodle’s free online scheduling tool Doodle is a free online appointment scheduler that can be used to book meetings and other events with friends, colleagues and anyone else. Email threads trying to book a large number of appointments can quickly become confusing and trying to mark off available and booked time slots on a piece of paper. With bookitit º you can offer automated appointment scheduling by phone. Customers book appointments by phone without you answering the phone. We use our own cookies and third cookies to improve our services and show adds according to your preferences.

    Low power, in fact, makes a telescope much more convenient to handle, and if your telescope mount or tripod is a bit shaky, as least lower powers will not magnify "the shakes" as much.   When an Office user tries to schedule a meeting in a room that's already reserved for another meeting, the Calendar Attendant doesn't automatically decline the conflicting meeting request. CAUSE This issue occurs if the AllRequestOutOfPolicy property of the room mailbox is set to True.

With automated scheduling: If you book earlier, you will get a higher priority in the queue. Critically this priority is maintained when your observations fail due to poor weather. If part of your observations fail, it is very likely that they will be obtained within one or two days.

A robotic telescope is an astronomical telescope and detector system that makes observations without the intervention of a astronomical disciplines, a telescope qualifies as robotic if it makes those observations without being operated by a human, even if a human has to initiate the observations at the beginning of the night, or end them in the morning.

The experience of HST in the domain of automated telescope scheduling. makes it clear that it is a technology that can be fruitfully applied to groundbased and. multi-observatory scheduling. Automated Telescope Scheduling. Article (PDF Available) September In this paper we describe the development of highlevel automated scheduling tools, including tools based on constraint.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Abstract: With the ever increasing level of automation of astronomical telescopes the benefits and feasibility of automated planning and scheduling are becoming more apparent.

Improved efficiency and increased overall telescope utilization are the most obvious goals. If you want to observe such targets, you will need to establish the RA and Dec coordinates for a given time. Then, you will need to use custom scheduling to book your session at the appropriate time.

We are working on a new feature that will allow you to use MPC-1 lines to automatically retrieve object ephemeris and use our automated scheduler. The fully automated GoTo mount, with its mind-blowing features, make the NexStar the best fully automated telescope you can buy. With a database of more t celestial objects, the GoTo mount works very impressively for beginners who might be new to astronomy and don’t know what objects to check out at first.

The Celestron SkyProdigy is the first consumer telescope to offer fully automatic alignment. Once you set it up under the night sky, it takes about 3 minutes for the scope to find itself. Abstract. This paper describes our project on advanced planning and scheduling for remote, fully automatic telescopes.

In addition to a more advanced automatic scheduler for nightly observations, our project is also building automated tools to address the entire life-cycle of an observation request, from original receipt to the return of raw data and preliminary data reduction.

Denny 1 DC-3 Dreams SP, Mesa, Arizona Abstract: Automated telescope scheduling systems have traditionally focused on optimizing the use of the observatory, minimizing overhead and maximizing shutter-open time. Automated planning and scheduling technology enables a new class of autonomous spacecraft.

We describe our use of symbolic AI in planning systems, provide an overview of the spacecraft-operations domain, and discuss several past, ongoing, and future deployments of planning systems technology at.

Just-In-Case scheduling is able to build schedules that are robust and of high quality. The Just-In-Case algorithm is motivated in this paper by a specific telescope scheduling problem, and the paper presents the results of an experiment, carried out using real telescope scheduling data, that illustrates the performance improvement one can.

The excellent optics of the CPC XLT telescope show me excellent views of the planets. When I look at Jupiter with a mm plossl eyepiece (about x magnification) I see multiple cloud bands and I can see the pale color of Jupiter's famous Great Red Spot. One night when the air was unusually still and clear I used a mm Ultrascopic eyepiece with a 2x Barlow for a magnification of X.

Meade telescopes generally use a 2-star alignment process. Some of their entry-level telescopes, like the Meade ETX Telescope, require the user to manually enter the date, time, and the telescope has this information, it moves automatically to where it thinks a certain star should be.

The star will be referenced by name, but there is little need to have knowledge of where that. Automated scheduling at some level has been done for several satellite observatories, but the requirements on these systems were much less stringent than on modern ground or satellite observatories.

The scheduling problem is particularly acute for Hubble Space Telescope: virtually all observations must be planned in excruciating detail weeks to. Appointment-Plus | Manual vs. Automated Appointment Scheduling | 3 Introduction The scheduling of appointments and reservations is an important task in the operations of all-sized organizations, from Fortune companies and enterprise corporations, right down to service-based small businesses.

While the manner of appointment-scheduling has. Square gives you all the main features of appointment scheduling software without hiding anything behind a paywall or showing pesky ads.

You can set up a webpage where clients can view your open time slots and book an appointment, send automatic email or SMS reminders when the appointment is drawing near, and sync your appointments with Google Calendar, so any conflicts you.

Like most spacecraft, HST operates primarily on stored commands. The Planning and Scheduling (PASS) team at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) nominally delivers command loads weekly; however, re-planning can occur outside this nominal schedule for multiple reasons.

Re-planning due to a target of opportunity is a prime example. Scheduling software enables businesses to schedule employees, appointments, equipment, facilities, events, classes, and other resources.

It may include tools for automation, SMS and email reminders, booking requests, and approvals.The experience of HST in the domain of automated telescope scheduling makes it clear that it is a technology that can be fruitfully applied to groundbased and multi-observatory scheduling.

The use of artificial intelligence software technology makes it straightforward to adapt the HST planning tools to other telescope scheduling problems.Computerized telescopes help you bring celestial objects into view with ease.

User-friendly computerized telescopes use GoTo or GPS technology to locate a specific target in the night sky with just a few simple steps. Because computerized telescopes take some of the guesswork out of astronomy, they are great for beginner hobbyists!
