The Australian Gemini Office (AusGO) hosted by the Australian Astronomical Observatory coordinates Australian usage of large offshore facilities including the Gemini 8.1 metre telescopes in Hawaii and Chile; the Keck 10 metre and Subaru 8.2 metre telescopes in Hawaii (via a time exchange agreement with Gemini); and the Magellan 6.5 metre telescopes in Chile. AusGO consists of the Australian Gemini Scientist (Stuart Ryder) and AusGO Research Fellow Caroline Foster-Guanzon based at the AAO.
