Hello, this is just 2 general questions :

Do you please have an estimation of the cost of one hour observation with
XMM-Newton,
and can you give me the available observing time per week ?

Thanks a lot,
Sebastien Vauclair (OMP, Toulouse, France)

PS: I was at the first SAS-Workshop

I am sorry but we do not have here this information.

> and can you give me the available observing time per week ?

for each revolution (48 hours= 172800 seconds) about 140 Kseconds is 
the maximum that can be scheduled. If you are interested in the real
efficency of the different instruments, please have a look at:

Please contact us again if you are interested in more details.

Best regards,

Nora
