Welcome to the home page of the Australian Gemini Office

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 Subaru 8.2 metre telescope 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 based at the AAO, and the Joint AusGO / Macquarie University Lecturer in Astronomy Richard McDermid.
