Summary

Observations Startup. Some issues
  • Magnitude of the star, the catalogue shows a 14.5 and the AO select 16.
  • Failing of FW2 position. Vignetting of the field.
  • Variable seeing all the night0.9"-1.4". Rapid changes of the seeing.
  • Offset sent inside of the patrol field failed after resumeAO. It was necessary to modify the script to have small dither offsets.
  • ACE Mode not stable. It has failed two times during the acquiring of the star.
