Night Plan

  • Starting Config LUCI-Bino (or LUCI-2 depending on LUCI-1 status)
  • LBTB Science until 00:10
  • DEC Time
    • LBTI DX Commissioning - handover until twilight
    • If conditions too poor for LBTI
      • LUCI-Bino (or mono)
        • Rothberg Local Mergers
          • OT: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2022A_D_E/PoorWeather/Rothberg/LocalMergers/COBandhead_Mergers_V47.xml
            • 1 hour per target - 1hr15 with telluric
            • Not in order of priority - observe best placed target
            • NGC 4004 - DEC +27 - twilght-02hr
            • UGC 9829 - DEC -01 - 21:30-twilight
        • Photometric Standards - any seeing, but must be clear
          • /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2022A_D_E/PoorWeather/LUCI_Phot_Standards
          • Select stars based on visibility, need to get stars at two different airmasses
      • MODS
        • Spetrophotometric Standards
          • Observe all modes/configurations - any seeing, but must be clear
    • If LBTI DX Com cannot go forward - but conditions are good:
      • LUCI-1 AO checks (dependent on LUCI-1 detector focus)
        • OSCO - 0.5hr
        • ESM observations of faint Bin 4 targets - 0.5hr
          • Already Generated Mixed Mode Scripts: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2022A_D_E/LUCI/AO_ESM/Bin4_ESM_Faint_Test
          • GD 321 - R=16.6 WFSMag=17.7
            • GD321_Bin4_R16pt6_ESM_SL.xml - mixed mode; GD321_Bin4_R16pt6_L1.xml - mono
            • visible all night
            • 9pt dither H-band - 1min shutter time per dither
          • SBSS 1510+510 R=17.1 WFSMag=17.96
            • GD321_Bin4_R16pt6_ESM_SL.xml - mixed mode; SBSS1510+510_Bin4_R17pt1_L1.xml - mono
            • visible all night
            • 9pt dither H-band - 1min shutter time per dither
          • 6C 165641+474241 QSO Rmag=17 (18.2)
            • 6C165641_QSO_Bin4_R17_ESM_SL.xml - mixed mode; 6C165641_QSO_Bin4_R17_L1.xml - mono
            • visible 21:00-twilight
            • 9pt dither H-band - 1min shutter time per dither
        • Angular Separation tests - 0.5-1hr
          • in OT: AO STARS - FULL DITHERS *NEW*-->Binaries
          • May only do some
            • Target 2 BD+00 2888 R=10.7 - separation 0.225" - need 256x2048 subframe - visible twilight-01hr
              • Target 5 GD 135 R=14.6 - separation 0.3" - no subframe - visible twilight-00hr
            • Target 4 SBSS 1148+564 R=14.9 separation 0.6" - no subframe - visible twilight - 02:45hr
            • Target 6 2MASSJ1128+3136 R=13.5 - 1" separation - no subframe - visible twilight - 01:30hr
            • Target 7 2MASSJ13061537+2043444 R=8.5 - 1.6" separation -64x2048 subframe - visible twilight-twilight
              • Note: given separation and lack of GS only 1 PA script is available - companion should be visible directly below main star
              • Target 9 2MASSJ10590395+6349283 Bin 2 R=12.7 - 1.57" separation - No subframe backup - visible twilight-02:45hr
