Observing instructions

We have a general observing cookbook which both include general instructions common to all observations, and more specific instructions for the different instruments. It was agreed that it would be better to make instrument specific cookbooks in which only the relevant information appears. This will be made in a modular form such that parts common to more than one cookbook (e.g., the telescope starting-up and closing-down instructions which is relevant to all instruments, or the instructions for StanCam which apply to the use of that instrument but also when observing with FIES) would not have to be updated in each separate copy, with the danger that there are divergent versions of the same information. The work with the instrument specific cookbooks is currently on-going.
