Night log:

email from Simone (sharkvis):


as you know SV will try to observe within the upcoming inaf run starting on Tuesday night, 13 Feb Arizona time. We will use the usual disruptive mode: if the conditions are good we activate the observations. In that case SN will be in parallel on SX.

1) Target

Our plan for the run is to observe one Taurus source per night.

The target for the first night of observations will be "LkCa 15".

In attachment you find an alt-az plot for an observation of 2 hours starting at HA -0.5h.

As you see the object culminates at the very beginning of the night, so it is very important to try to start observing as soon as possible to maximize the field rotation.

2) AO info

AO should use the "window" mode.

3) SV config files

We will use the "SV_Lmirc_LP" config; in the attached pdf you find a recap of the relevant files to be loaded.


Checked the ncpa link to SV_Lmirc_LP.
