Wagner Program

UT 07:32 - heading to pointing star - seeing as 1.3-1.6" at handover

UT 07:39 - 0.8-0.9" on DIMM

UT 07:42 - running with 0.8" script for v392per

UT 07:49 - nudge MODS-1 over + 2 pix +0.25", MODS-2 nudge -0.13" (bit more than 1pix), nudged back MODS-1 -0.13" - MODS-2 is spot on

UT 07:50 - starting spectroscopy

M1R 0006-0008

M1B 0002-0004

M2R 0006-0008

M2B 0002-0004

- first spectra look good, can see emission lines

UT 08:07 - DIMM 0.77" Guiders 0.60" on WFS

UT 08:18 - powering up LBC-Red for later

UT 08:29 - completed v392per

UT 08:30 - moving to v959mon

UT 08:37 - MODS1-R slow readout, MODS-2 bang on, nudging MODS-1 over by -0.123"

UT 08:42 - MODS-1 bang on, starting spectroscopic script v959mon

M1R 0013-0015

M1B 0005-0007

M2R 0012-0014

M2B 0005-0007

UT 08:50 - DIMM 0.68" WFS 0.70"

UT 09:07 - first exposures out, can see emission lines - looking at SX guider in LBTtools - definitely have clouds passing over us

UT 09:49 - completed v959mon

UT 09:50 - moving to Feige 34

UT 09:58 - had to tweak alignment again with modsAlign -r

UT 09:59 - starting spectroscopy

UT 10:13 - completed Feige 34

M1R 0018-0020

M1B 0008-0010

M2R 0017-0019

M2B 0008-0010

UT 10:13 - sending Praesep MOS mask acquisition script

UT 10:27 - alignment complete - looks good both sides - starting spectroscopic observations

M1R 0024-0026

M1B 0011-0013

M2R 0023-0025

M2B 0011-0013

DIMM 0.6" WFS on both sides 0.47"

UT 11:05 - finished Praesepe 1"slit MOS mask

UT 11:06 - moving to Rothberg QSO (PG1202+281)

UT 11:15 - MODS1-R again slow readout

-since MODS1 so slow, MODS-2 script started first with execMODS --mods2

-MODS1-R readout again slow

UT 11:24 - starting MODS1 spectroscopy (its 2 minutes behind)

M1R 0027-0031

M1B 0014-0015

M2R 0026-0030

M2B 0014-0015

DIMM 0.9" WFS 0.48-0.50"

taking an extra 900sec exposure on each side

UT 12:01 - WFS 0.6"

UT 12:09 - WFX 0.51-0.53"

Veillet Program

UT 12:15 - Reconfiguring for LBC-Red on DX

UT 12:30 - sending focus script for 2018 VR5

UT 12:34 - running dohybrid

UT 12:40 - converged, sending non-sidereal override for 2018 VR5 (5 exp x 120 sec no dither)

UT 12:44 - DIMM 0.92"

UT 12:53 - finished 2018 VR5

UT 12:54 - slewing to focus field for 2018 ET2

UT 12:59 - slewing to 2018 ET2 (5exp x 120 sec no dither)

UT 13:59 - taking 10 LBC-Red Biases

UT 14:03 - powering off LBC-Red

UT 14:19 - Bino-MODS Dual Grating 0.8" slitflats

UT 14:41 - MODS put to sleep (will need to finish Praesepe cals and biases later)
