Night Partition

  • Night split with PEPSI/PETS
  • Moon rises 23:22 - through twilght (79%)
  • D/E-time: twilight-20:40 (30min early to reconfig and setup PEPSI) - Moon down
  • PEPSI/PETS - 21:10-02:16
  • D/E-time - 02:26-twilight

Issues:

  • MODS-2 is offline until further notice

Calibrations to be done

  • MODS cals taken - PI only needs slitless dual grating and dual arcs. No need for 1" or 0.6" slit flats

Night Plan Eng Time

  • Start of Night with MODS-1
  • SpecStd G191B2b - observe this first regardless of program executed before PEPSI/PETS
  • mid-z ULIRG FF0937+3857 ~ observe until handover
    • Script Location: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2021A_D_E/Feb_Mar_2021/Rothberg_Science/mid-z-ULIRGs
    • Conditions: Seeing < 1.2", thin clouds OK
  • Reconfigure at 20:40 for PEPSI/PETS
  • 02:26 - After PEPSI/PETS - reconfigure for MODS-1
  • SpecStd Feige 67 - observe this after handover from PEPSI/PETS regardless of program 2nd half
  • Rothberg IMBH candidate - MODS-1 only is OK - will collect more data following night to make up for loss of MODS-2
    • Script Location: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2021A_D_E/Feb_Mar_2021/Rothberg_Science/IMBH
    • Conditions: Seeing < 1.2", thin clouds OK
    • Observe after SpecStd until twilight
  • Poor Weather Backup
    • CaT Observations of RLQs/RQQs - LD-2019B-004 - observe from twilight to handover - MODS-1
      • Any conditions
      • 3c59 - hits 30deg limit at 20;30 (26deg override in place, so can probably go a little longer)
      • PG 1416-129 - up all 2nd half - 90min
      • Script Location: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2021A_D_E/Feb_Mar_2021/Rothberg_Science/QSOs_MODS
    • Velocity Dispersion of local mergers - LD-2019B-005 - 90min MODS-1
      • Any Conditions
      • Script Location: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2021A_D_E/Feb_Mar_2021/Rothberg_Science/Local_Mergers/scripts
      • N6598 - all up 2nd half of night
      • any conditions - go longer if poorer conditions
