Plan for E/D Nights 04-07 Feb 2020 UT

  • Engineering
    • IRTC on SX - AO data collection (pending install) - high priority
    • Mixed-mode LBC/LUCI tests - dithering tests - medium priority - 0.5 hr - presets worked in full binocular mode
    • Contingency roll-over of LUCI-2/AGW-2
      • More thorough checks on Rot ZP, collect transform confirmatory data for LUCI-2 - 1hr
    • TCS + MCSPU 2020B release - testing occurs during regular use of telescope
    • Alarm Handling System move to its own dedicated VM - low priority, transparent - testing occurs during regular use of telescope
    • 2x rm507 64bits rollout - staff to use machines during nighttime operations
    • Standards for LUCI-2 - LUCI_PhotZP.tar.gz - on Google Drive
      • Photometric standard observations - 2 airmasses minimum, execute only if sure absolutley clear
  • Closed-Dome testing
    • UT 04-Feb LN 2nd half
    • UT 04-Feb - AZ calibrations
    • No Arcetri closed dome work befor UT 08-Feb
  • Last two hours of UT 06-Feb and 07-Feb are PEPSI tests for faint targets - remote from Potsdam.
  • D-targets
    • A. Conrad/C. Veillet
      • Geo-Sync satellite - requires IRTC on SX w/SOUL AO (contingent upon LUCI-1 removal and IRTC install)

    • M. Wagner
      • Files located: OBS-N: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/Eng_Jan_2020/

        • MODS-Bino - 1 hr Dual Grating 1" slit
        • Requires 1" or better on AGW/WFS

        • LUCI-2 - 2.75 hrs G200 1" slit HKspec
        • MODS-Bino - 1 hr Dual Grating 1" slit
        • Requires 1" or better on AGW/WFS
      • Triple Merger Candidate SDSS J1342+19133- all 2nd half - higher priority
        • LUCI-2 - 2.75 hrs G200 1" slit HKspec
        • MODS-Bino - 1 hr Dual Grating 1" slit
        • nuclei separations are 5" and 8" - so looser constraintes
