Summary

Lost to cloudy weather.

Preparations:

IRTC still not allowing setting of the exposure time from iraf through the IRC. Tonight I did a complete restart at the linux level on lbtmu05 (starting from completely logged out). May try rebooting the IRTC control computer later.

19:16 Preset closed dome (before sunset) ACQUIRE mode to test...GCS hung on guide star selection. Repeat the full AGW/GCS shutdown, restart, and selectAGW commands. 19:29 preset completed.

Heavy clouds at sunset. Tair=9.6C, Tprimary=9.8C, RH=48%, wind 0-8m/s.

01:45 Still 80% heavy clouds. Temp, RH stable. No thunderstorms.

03:45 Calling it a night. Lost to weather.
