Join The GTN

There are two categories of membership in the GTN. These are based on interest and ability. They are Associate and Partner, and are described below. Use the link in the header portion of this page to become a member of the GTN.

Associates are individuals or groups who dedicate some portion of their time to analyzing data taken with other people’s telescopes. You can adopt your own program objects from our list or request data for other objects by submitting a short proposal.

Partners are individuals or groups who dedicate some portion of their time and expertise on observatory hardware they already own. They agree to regularly observe astronomical targets that are part of the GTN program. Partners may occasionally be able or willing to offer telescope time to other GTN participants. Of course, partners may also analyze GTN data, either their own or data taken by others.

Some of the benefits of membership:

Access to the data in the GTN Data Archive

Opportunities to collaborate with:

  • Fermi scientists
  • Other GTN participants

Announcements of important events such as AGN and GRB outbursts.

GTN Updates which will include:

  • Summaries of data submitted to the GTN Archive
  • Summaries of projects by GTN participants
  • Reports from Fermi project staff and astronomers

In addition, you can use the following resources which are also available to non-members:

Tutorials and other resources pertaining to:

  • Observational astronomy
  • Telescopes
  • CCD cameras
  • Image data reduction
  • Standards based curricula, materials, lesson plans for use in and out of the classroom.

Once you have completed the online application for participation in the GTN you will be contacted by a member of the GTN team. We will ask for some of the details about your telescope and CCD camera.We will probably also want to know how many images you expect to submit to the GTN Archive in a year.
