Details

04:48 Starting up MODS
  • mods1 start gui
  • execMODS ~MODSeng/modsScripts/Support/modsWake.pro
  • modsDisp

04:50 Bias frames
  • execMODS allbias.cal mods1b.20120116./mods1r.20120116 0001-0030

05:45 Nonino MOS calibrations
  • execMODS gmosFlatNonino0647.cal - flats with mask ID520958 vflat 7 mods1b / mods1r 0031-0035 (clear - GG495)

05:55 Power outage... the compressor went off. we might need to restart everything
  • we go on with the calibrations, since according to support astronomer and TO internal mods calibrations should not be affected.
  • execMODS gmosARCNonino0647.cal - ARCS with mask ID520958 mods1b / mods1r 0036-0038
  • execMODS gmosARCNonino0717.cal - ARCS with mask ID532613 mods1b / mods1r 0039-0041
  • execMODS gmosFlatNonino0717.cal - flats with mask ID532613 vflat 7 mods1b / mods1r 0042-0046 (clear - GG495)
  • execMODS gmosFlatNonino0744.cal - flats with mask ID581623 vflat 7 mods1b / mods1r 0047-0051 (clear - GG495)
  • when this script finished the red images did not appear in newdata and in the control panel it was saying - last image 48 - next image 51, the status during the execution of the OB also showed no errors. In order to retrieve those images and make them appear in /newdata we had to type in the control panel - command line box: red fitsflush
  • execMODS gmosARCNonino0744.cal - ARCS with mask ID581623 mods1b / mods1r 0052-0054

07:16 Calibrations for standard stars longslits
  • execMODS grlamps5.0.cal - ARCS with LS60x5 for both channels using template script mod1b / mod1r 0055-0057
  • execMODS SlitFlatLBT5.0.cal - flats with LS60x5 for both channels using template script mod1b / mod1r 0058-0062 (clear - GG495)

07:35 Another power glitch - we go on with mods.
  • execMODS SlitFlatLBT1.0.cal - flats with LS5x60x1.0 for both channels using template script mod1b / mod1r 0063-0067 (clear - GG495)
  • execMODS grlamps1.0.cal - ARCS with LS5x60x1.0 for both channels using template script mod1b / mod1r 0068-0070
  • execMODS SlitLESSFlat.cal - slitless flats for pixel to pixel response - we used template script mod1b 0071-0080 / mod1r 0071-0075

08:28 Fiore MOS calibrations - scripts have been slightly changed from what the PI has sent
  • execMODS grmosflats.56.FIORE1.cal - we have changed the archive info and nimg from 1 to 5 mod1b 0081-0090 / mod1r 0076-0085
  • some slits (probably the ref boxes) in the red flats for the QTH1 are saturated
  • execMODS grmosflats.57.FIORE2.cal - we have changed the archive info and nimg from 1 to 5 mod1b 0091-0100 / mod1r 0086-0095
  • execMODS grmosflats.55.FIORE3.cal - we have changed the archive info and nimg from 1 to 5 mod1b 0101-0110 / mod1r 0096-0105
  • some slits (probably the ref boxes) are saturated. This happens more often in red but ut also happens occasionally in the blue (QTH1+ UG5)

09:46 We have modified the PIs OBs because he was using the prism template... instead we have used the grlamps.cal template after replacing the slit ID with the mosID
  • need to ask Olga for updated templates
  • execMODS grmoslamps.55.FIORE3.cal mod1b 0111-0113 / mod1r 0106-0108
  • execMODS grmoslamps.56.FIORE1.cal mod1b 0114-0116 / mod1r 0109-0111
  • execMODS grmoslamps.57.FIORE2.cal mod1b 0117-0119 / mod1r 0112-0114
  • execMODS grpixflats.cal mod1b 0120-0129 / mod1r 0115-0119
  • execMODS grpixflats.cal mod1b 0130-0139 / mod1r 0120-0124 repeat with INAF in the pi_name
  • execMODS bias8K.cal mod1b 0140-0149 / mod1r 0125-0134

11:30 execMODS ~MODSeng/modsScripts/Support/modsSleep.pro
  • End of night
