Night Plans

  1. 1st half LBTI
  2. 2nd half ECD

DDT Observations
  1. Troja:
    • GRB Obs with LUCI2 and MODS1
    • obj at RA 22hr Dec 13
    • Scripts located in: /home/inaf/ScienceRuns/lbtobs/2023/LUCI/Troja_36/obs
    • LUCI2:
      We propose to observe the target with LUCI2 for 2 epochs. Each epoch is composed of 1 hr of imaging in clear K with camera N3.75, Nexpo=1, NDIT=24, DIT=2.51, READOUT=LIR, Savemode=Integrated.
  2. Mannucci
    • LUCI AO on dual AGN at 3hr +41

OTs in Service_Observing/2023B_ECD/LUCI/DDT

LUCI2 Transform
  1. Collect transform data - (2hrs) low priority must do RotZP First
  2. Target Fields, select one near transit:
    • Stone O 21 37 31 +00 31 55 Stone_O_m12.list
    • Stone P22 35 49 +01 31 33 Stone_P1.list
    • Stone A 00 54 02 -00 32 34 Stone_A3.list
  3. Seeing should be no worse than ~1", list should include ~ 50 stars
  4. Have the TO send an Active preset to tune pointing on the field and collimate
  5. Configure LUCI with the N30 field stop aligned, N375 camera, H filter, flexure compensation on.
  6. Follow the instructions as outlined on: https://wiki.lbto.org/Commissioning/ComTools#Guide_Probe_Transformation
  7. Take 5xdarks to match exposure time taken
  8. Process transform data (or shoot Doug an email ASAP)

MODS Transform
  1. Collect transform data with MODS (2hrs needed) (Critical)

LUCI2 ESM on-sky checks
  1. ESM Science like OB check
    1. Bin4
    2. Bin1
    3. Bin2

Closed Dome Plan

  • Generate and test low mode LBTI reconstructor for SHARK-VIS
