08:07 Starting Bias OB Pagano
  • Bias not windowed!
  • Bias interrupted at 30 bias on red channel - 22 in blue channel

08:19 dofpia, X2 on target field Pagano

08:24 Defocusing at -0.2 (initially try -0.15 but Star saturated)
  • Counts of 40.126

08:29 Starting OB Pagano
  • ob stopped due to high count

08:35 add defocus

08:37 add defocus
  • - 035 total defocusing in order to have less than 30.000 counts
