Details

07:30 Flattening the mirror

07:42 Dome closed because of high wind

10:40 Open dome again - moving to zenith

10:45 preset - >iif_preset, M5_1416, GS=0, MODE=ACQUIRE, ROTMODE=PARALLACTIC

10:57 preset to do collimate_collect - > collimate_collect, BS9162, GS=2, PA=-90, SETS=20
  • no star found
  • we're trying to find the star with an iif_preset -> iif_preset, BS9162, GS=2, MODE=GUIDE
  • there is a star but it is way out of focus... we sent iif_preset again but with MODE=ACQUIRE
  • actually before we were seeing a ghost and GS was out of the acquisition image. G.B. did a pointing correction.

11:09 repeat iif_preset, BS9162, GS=2, MODE=GUIDE
  • either bad focus or very bad seeing - almost 4 degrees of temp difference for the mirrors

11:10 collimate_collect, BS9162, GS=2, SETS=20
  • actually needs to be done from GCS, so we add flag: /GCS
  • script aborted - getirparams error

11:25 we're acquiring on axis to see if our pointing is correct -> iif_preset, BS9162, GS=0, MODE=ACQUIRE
  • we see the star and we start the collimate collect again
  • seeing 1.2''-1.4''

11:35 dice5_1_75c
  • seeing 1.3 - 1.8'' - very variable seeing
