IRTF Feedback Form

Please take a few moments to answer the following questions about your IRTF observing run. Your feedback is the most valuable information we have on the service the IRTF is providing to its community.

This Feedback Form is sent ONLY to John Rayner, the IRTF Director, who will review its content and remove sensitive material before distributing to appropriate members of the IRTF staff. Confidential comments may also be provided directly to John Rayner by telephone at (808) 956-9846 or by email at

If you have an interesting result, please consider making it available as a science highlight for NASA Headquarters and contact John Rayner to do this. Published results should acknowledge the IRTF and the instrument used. See our acknowledgement page for more information.
