Plan for the night

Once more:

- AO-tests until after midnight

- LUCI-AO afterwards

Summary

- Good AO-weather during 1st part of night, progress on the AO-side

- No LUCI-AO as we were closed for the rest of the night once AO-tests were complete

Preparations

The Arcetri-folks did some tests with the ARGOS Calunit during afternoon a bit into the night

Details

All times are UT
Files are luci1/2.20170921.NNNN.fits

01:30 Sunset, sky clear, T = +9deg, hum = 75%, wind ~ 15 m/s

03:15 Calunit tests complete, Steve prepares scope, opens up, checks pointing and collimates

03:55 AO-groups point to their first target, seeing is good, DIMM reports around 1" !

5:30 DIMM seeing still around 1"

08:15 Can't believe that: the Italians are done and have to leave...
and we have to close as the humidity went above the limits ( must be devil's advocate frown, sad smile )

High humidity for the rest of the night
