Night Partition

D/E Time - twilight until 21:30 - handover to PEPSI (local)

PEPSI 21:30hr - 04:05hr (local)

D/E Time - 04:15 to twilght (local)

Script Location: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/D_E_Feb_Mar_2021/

NOTE: M3 SX still risky for transitioning among LBTI, PEPSI, and LUCI - no bent Gregorian to be used before PEPSI to avoid loss of time to PETS

Night Plan

  • twilight-21:30 - Dynamical Properties of mid-z ULIRGs (Rothberg) - MODS
    • seeing < 1.2", thin clouds or better
    • FF0234-0139 - 2hrs
    • scripts and finder: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/D_E_Feb_Mar_2021/Rothberg_Science/mid-z-ULIRGs
    • Observe target first, then observe G191B2b spec std - need to get on target as soon as dark enough
    • Target is on faint side - finder chart is from previous MODS observations (but was taken at a PA changed from requested PA - ignore the guideprobe shadow in finder)
  • 04:15-twilight - Optical Spectra of IMBH Candidate - (Rothberg) - MODS
    • Seeing 1.2" or better, thin clouds or better
    • Script Location: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/D_E_Feb_Mar_2021/Rothberg_Science/IMBH
    • Observe target first then Feige 67

  • Poor Conditions/Weather Backup
    • MODS Field Correction check for IT 8315
      • 1-1.5 hours in seeing better than 1.4 arcsec, clouds don't matter much
      • Can be done in place of IMBH if seeing is not good enough (1.2" or better)
      • priority=medium (problem may have been with us for a year)
      • run IDL task field_collect (same as measuring field aberrations)
    • Velocity dispersions of Local Mergers - LD-2019B-005 - 1hr per target bino-MODS - up to 1.5" seeing 1-2mags cloud extinction - variable seeing OK - (Rothberg)
      • UGC 4079 - twilight to 04hr - backup for first part of night
      • NGC 2744 19:30hr to 04hr - backup for first part of night
      • NGC 3310 - 20hr to twilight
      • NGC 6598 - 03hr to twilight
      • Spec Std G191b2b first half
      • Spec Std Feige 67 2nd half
      • Script and finder Location: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/D_E_Feb_Mar_2021/Rothberg_Science/Local_Mergers/scripts
