Night Plan

  • AZ science handover at 22hr, return at 03hr
  • Roll this over to Saturday UT March 13 (same plan) if conditions also poor then
  • iLocator needs AO quality conditions
  • If conditions are:
      • Seeing > 1.2"
      • and/or clouds
    • Re-point TCS test (high priority)
      • TCS patch is in place - need to verify its working for SOUL/FLAO on SX
      • verify that re-point works - seeing up to 2"
    • ESM testing in poor conditons - collect FWHMs of stars in ESM on L1 and SL on L2
      • Mixed-mode are TargetName _ESM_SL.xml
        • M67 /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2022A_D_E/LUCI/AO_ESM/ESM/M67/
        • Twilight-02hr
          • Bin 1/ R=8.9 (pick any PA)
          • Bin 4/R=16.51 (pick any PA)
        • M92 /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2022A_D_E/LUCI/AO_ESM/ESM/M92
          • Bin 1 (R9pt4 scripts) or Bin 4 (R15pt1)
    • LUCI Photometric Standards (any seeing, if so bad can't guide, use track mode) - requires clear skies
      • /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2022A_D_E/PoorWeather/LUCI_Phot_Standards
      • Select stars based on visibility, need to get stars at two different airmasses
      • LUCI is selected as its most likely to be used before handing over from AZ science
    • Poor Weather Science Backup - any non-iLocator good enough conditions qualify
      • Rothberg - Local Mergers
        • OT: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2022A_D_E/PoorWeather/Rothberg/LocalMergers/COBandhead_Mergers_V42.xml
        • NGC 4004 - 21hr-twilight
        • NGC 3597 - 23hr-02hr
        • UGC 9829 - 01:30hr-twilight
        • UGC 9829 - 01:30hr-twilight
        • UGC 10607 - 02hr -twilight
        • UGC 10675 - 02hr-twilight
