Accessible sky area

[The sky area accessible with the 3.6m+CES configuration]
The sky area accessible to the 3.6m+CES telescope-instrument configuration is characterized by the conditions:

1) limit in hour angle HA: -5 h 30 m < HA < 5 h 30 m

2) limit in zenith distance ZD: ZD < 70°

3) limit in declination DEC: -120° < DEC < +29.5°

In condition (3) declinations less than -90° refer to an accessible sky region "below" the southern pole, i.e. 12 h away in hour angle with respect to condition (1).
