Planning Page for E/D Nights UT Nov 30- Dec 3



Critical Dates/Times:

  • PEPSI Observations 1st half UT Dec 01 (Nov 30 local time) - handover 00:00hr
  • PEPSI Pol installation Dec 1 (daytime)
  • PEPSI Observations 2nd half UT Dec 03 (Dec 02 local time) - handover 00:00hr - PEPSI observations scheduled to start 23:55 local time
  • Optimal Mars observations times
    • UT Dec 01 (Nov 30 local) - UT 03:20hr (20:20 local)
    • UT Dec 02 (Dec 01 local) - UT 02:30hr (19:30 local)
    • UT Dec 03 (Dec 02 local) - UT 01:30hr (18:30 local)
    • UT Dec 03 (Dec 02 local) - UT 05:00hr (22:00 local)
  • Transit Times of HD 33632
    • UT Nov 30 07:5 1hr
    • UT Dec 1 07:47 hr
    • UT Dec 2 07:43 hr
    • UT Dec 3 07:39 hr

Tasks:

  • AGW3/4 checkout for PEPSIPOL - Dec 01 or Dec 02
    • 1 hour for basic guiding and active optics checkout on AGW3 and AGW4 (critical, most any decent conditions)
    • 3 hours for further AGW3 and AGW4 work on IT 7545 which ended softly (medium-high)
    • 2 hours for AGW3 and AGW4 alignment (medium)
    • Polarimteric standard calibrator gamma equ (21:10:20 +10:07:53 - hits 30deg limit at 21hr local time) - 0.5 hr
  • LBC Technical Work
    • Focus offsets (2hrs)
    • On-sky Gain/Linearity measurements (using commissioning methods) (2hrs). This requires photometric skies.
  • TMS passive data collection in parallel with LBC-Red (whenever LBC-Red is used w/o LUCI1)
  • TMS: a few hours to run TMS actively controlling the LBC-Red Collimation
  • AO Technical Work
    • SOUL/LUCI Mars Observations (see below for details) - thin cirrus DIMM 1.2" or better - 1st half time constraint
      • Scripts: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/Nov_Dec_2020_E_D_Nights/Mars_AO
    • SOUL/LUCI ADI observations HD 33632 -1st half time constraint - bright target requires sub-framing - thin cirrus DIMM 1.2" or better - LBTI part POSTPONED UNTIL DEC
    • SOUL/LUCI Bin 4 checks - DIMM 1.2" or better
  • Science Programs
    • DONE GRB 200826A - AO H-band observations (2hrs) - Rothberg (rollover from last D nights) - clear preferred, thin cirrus OK, DIMM 1" or better - 1st half of night
      • Scripts: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/Nov_Dec_2020_E_D_Nights/GRB_200826A
      • Observe PSF star along with science target - AORef star manually set to R=16.51 to force Bin 4
    • UDS z~10 target - ESM/L1 spectroscopy w/L2 (SL) in parallel (3 hrs) - Rothberg (rollover from last D nights) - clear preferred, thin cirrus acceptable DIMM 1" or better - 1st half of night
      • Scripts: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/Nov_Dec_2020_E_D_Nights/UDS_z10_ESM_Science
      • Observations are mixed-mode: L1-ESM and L2-SL. Same setup on both sides (N3.75, G210 HKspec, CWL=1.6, 0.75" slit)
      • Blind offset along slit - center on AO Ref first then offset to faint galaxy - target is H=25.3 (won't see in acq images). AO Ref star remains in slit during observations
  • Poor Weather/Poor Seeing Condition Programs
    • ESM data collection M34 (3 filters) , M52 (3 filters and bright and faint AO Ref star), M67 (3 filters and bright and faint AO Ref star) - if you can close the loop take the data
    • ICRF3 Spectroscopy (Rothberg)
      • Scripts: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/Nov_Dec_2020_E_D_Nights/Poor_Weather/ICRF3_Rothberg_2020B
      • Observe telluric first
      • Double Check high Dec objects to make sure tellurc/science are close spatially
    • If clear but poor seeing, please observe standard stars, cycling through z,J,H,K,Ks
      • Scripts: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/Nov_Dec_2020_E_D_Nights/Poor_Weather/LUCI_Phot_ZP
      • Select stars to use based on visibility - OT file is in directory, export the scripts as needed
      • Please observe the same star at least two times at different airmasses
