MOSCA permanent set-up

MOSCA filter wheels, FASU A and B, each have 6 positions available. For operational reasons and for Target-of-Opportunity and/or monitoring programs as approved by the NOT Observing Programs Committee (OPC), several of the positions must have a fixed set-up as listed below.

During Nordic observing nights (i.e., any observing run for proposals with numbers in the range 001-199) the elements marked `ToO' should be installed at all times. The only exception would be if the regular observing program as approved by the OPC specifically requested more optical elements in the proposal form than there are slots available. Note that any modifications made later in the NIRF (the `NOT Instrument set-up Request Form' that is sent to observers approx. 1 month before the start of their observing run) must leave the `ToO' set-up intact.

For Spanish CAT (numbers 201-299) and ITP (numbers 301-399) proposals the elements can be changed without any limitations.

Optical elements which should be available at all times:

U#104, B#105, V#106, R#107, I#108, SDSS z#112
