Commissioning: 5 July 2010 UT

Observer: Pascale H (LBTO) Doug M (Tucson)
Telescope Operator: Steve A (LBTO)
Telescope Support: (LBTO)
Instrument Support: Tim S (LBTO)
Adaptive Secondary Operator: Pascale H (LBTO), Marco X (Firenze)

Summary

Night was clear with an average seeing of ~0.8-0.9".
Dice5 data on 7 stars at elevation > 45deg.
Collimation data at low elevation ~30deg.
Transformation data on StoneOagw field
We restarted twice the GCS due to problem of WFS. We do not know if the problem was script or GCS correlated.

Preparations

Single frame names refer to: irtc.20100705.xxxxxx.fits

Cube names refer to: irtc.20100705_00xxx_cube.fit

Plan for the night: follow Doug's verification plan, in particular to transformation data, collimation and pointing models.
