Engineering Tasks

  • DONE LBTI Photometric Standards - 2hr - any time
    • Tentative: First 2hr UT Nov 15 Sun
    • Seeing < 1.2"-1.5"
    • must be clear
  • LUCI-1 AO/ESM - close loop 1-2hrs
    • UT Nov 20 (before PEPSI/PETS) or UT Nov 20 after PEPSI/PETS (flexible)
  • LUCI-1 AO/ESM - 2x0.5 nights - science-like observations
    • Seeing <1.2" Full AO, < 1.5" ESM
    • UT Nov 23
      • ADI testing IP Tau transits UT 7:36
    • UT Nov 24
  • DONE LUCI RTD/GEIRS testing
    • in parallel with any LUCI E/D observations
  • LUCI Sub-frame readout tests - 2hrs
    • Any conditions
    1. DONE Execute subframing script generated with new updated subframe OT and templates
    2. DONE Execute subframe script with bright target located just outside the subframe field in the Y direction and look for possible cross talk
    3. DONE Execute a subframe script with a bright target located just outside the field in the X direction
    4. DONE test ADI template script generated with new updated OT and templates
  • DONE TCS/AO Patch - UT Nov 20, 23, 24
    • in parallel with LUCI-1 AO/ESM testing
  • DONE LBC timing test - 2hr
    • any conditions
  • DONE DONE LBC TMS testing -2-3hr
    • any conditions
    • seeing < 1.5" preferred

Science Programs

  • DONE DONE DONE DONE DONE M31 TOO - bino-MODS - Wagner - UT Nov 15
  • DONE DONE Arp 187 - search for AGN signatures in the near-IR - LUCI- 2.5hrs - Rothberg - UT Nov 15
    • Fraternal zJSpec G200 0.5" slit L1, HKspec G200 0.5" slit L2
    • Can be executed with mono-LUCI (HKspec higher priority)
    • preferred < 1.2" thin clouds - 2.5 hours
    • Can be executed in poorer conditions - requires 2-3x more time
      • single nucleus so no spatial seeing requirements to separate out lines from different hosts
    • Visible 23hr-04:45hr local time
  • DONE Pallas Observations - LBTI - 3hrs - Conrad
    • Time Critical UT Nov 18 - 30deg limit at 22hr local time
    • if unable to execute, rollover to UT Nov 19
  • mid-z ULIRGs - bino-MODS
    • Requires Moon to have set - UT Nov 15 (02:30hr) or UT Nov 16 (03:27hr) best
    • 1.5-2hrs per target w/overheads
    • thin clouds, seeing < 1.2"
    • DONE FF0937
    • FF1106
  • DONE GRB211023A Followup - bino-MODS
    • 2hrs w/overheads
    • thin clouds (up to ~0.5mag), seeing 1.2" or better
    • rollover thru semester

Backup (Poor Weather)

  • CO bandhead Local Mergers -Rothberg
    • G210 K-band (CWL 2.27 or 2.3 microns) bino- or mono-LUCI
    • 1-2 hrs per target depending on the conditions (thicker clouds and/or poor seeing go longer)
    • Targets:
      • NGC 6598 (CWL 2.3) - twilight -20:30hr
      • DONE NGC 7585 (CWL 2.27) - twilight -23hr
      • DONE UGC 11905 (CWL 2.3) - twilight - 23hr
      • DONE Arp 230 (CWL 2.27) - 19hr-00hr - only two exposures - could still be used for backup
      • DONE UGC 4079 (CWL 2.3) - 23hr - twilight
      • NGC 4004 (CWL 2.27) - 04hr - twilight
