VTT observing time is allocated under the following conditions. The successful applicant is obliged to obey the following rules:
\begin{enumerate}
\item
The PI agrees to follow the rules in the instructions for observers, which include safety precautions to avoid endangering the telescope and the requirement to read manuals before the observations.
\item
SOLARNET: The PI agrees that the data are openly available after a proprietary phase of 12 months. %For PhD theses, the proprietary phase is prolonged to 2 years.
\item
The PI is strongly encouraged to share the data with consortium members and with external scientists on a collaborative basis.
\item
In selecting the observing target and observing sequence the PI is engaged to efficiently use the telescope time. This implies to take data for other proposals in case the PI has accomplished her/his scientific goals or in case the proposed observing target is not available.
\item
All publications based on VTT data have to acknowledge VTT.
\item
The PI commits her/himself to submit an observing report according to a provided template within two weeks after the campaign focusing on the telescope and instrument performance. For efficient use of telescope time, the technical staff needs feedback about the performance of the telescope and instruments.
\end{enumerate}

{\bf \noindent Scientific Objectives of Observing Time} \par
{\scriptsize \noindent
(Please give a brief statement of the scientific objectives of the
requested observing campaign and describe your observing plan in some detail (instrument, spectral line, other instrument specific details). This information will be used to evaluate
the scientific merit and the observatory's general capability to conduct
the type of research you intend to do. Please make sure that all
necessary information is provided.) \par }

{\bf \noindent Former projects} \par
{\scriptsize \noindent (If this proposal is a continuation of a former
project, please provide a list of previous program titles and a brief
progress report on a separate sheet. Please include references to
publications which resulted from your earlier observing
programs. Apropos: Please let us know about any publication that
results from VTT data by sending the references to Jo Bruls (bruls@kis))

\section{Observing requests:}
{\bf Amount of time requested:}
{\scriptsize \noindent Please justify your choice.}
% Enter the number of days you request above this line
%----------------------------------------------------
\vskip 0.5cm
{\bf Coordinated observation:} {\scriptsize\noindent (Please indicate if
you are planning coordinated observations with other facilities.)}
% Please specify coordinated obervations above this line.
\vskip 1cm
{\bf Impossible Dates:}
{\scriptsize (In order to make most efficient use of observing time in
view of personnel limitations, the number of reconfigurations of the
telescope and its instrumentation will be limited. We therefore will
group observing requests of similar technical nature into combined
periods. An attempt will be made to accommodate a very limited amount
of ``impossible time'' in the schedule. There is absolutely no
guarantee for success of this attempt. Please keep this in mind when
specifying your restrictions above these lines. Please keep also in
mind the possibility of having your observations made by a colleague in
cases of time conflicts. Thank you for your cooperation.) \par}
% Please fill in impossible periods above

\subsection{Instruments}
A description of the VTT instrumentation can be found at:\\ \url{http://www.leibniz-kis.de/en/observatories/vtt/vtt-instrumentation/}
Please read it carefully and then specify the needs for your observing run in the following.
Please give an overview and describe additional needs at the end of this form in
Sect. \ref{sec:overview}. Some of the instruments and cameras can be combined and used simultaneously.
