INAF LBC+MODS+LUCI queue observing, 2012 December 02-03

Observer: E. Sani, F. Cusano, M. Fumana
Telescope Operator: D. Gonzalez Huerta
Support Astronomer: M. Edwars
Instrument: LUCI1


The sky is photometric at the beginning of the night, then during the integration of the fist target some cirrus arrive
The seeing is almost random, 1.5 at the beginning of the night, 0.7-.08 during the first Cresci scrip then gets worse again
Cirrus passing during the last part of the night
At the end of night we obtained LUCI sky flats for Turatto imaging + flats and arcs + dark for Cresci and Turatto . Dark frames for this data can be found in UT20121204 and UT20121205.

  • luci.21203.0051-0063
  • No way to identify the target and center it because of the bad seeing 2.0"

04.52 Slew to CSS121015 imaging.

07:10 Loose of the guiding star because of low elevation
  • Slew to the telluric
  • The TO tries to collimate somewhere else with airmass ~1 because of low elevation of the target

9.26 PSNJ07250042_HK.spec
  • Wrong order of the 200_H+K grating. quickly fixed by the S.A.
  • We require the S.A. to fix a problem with the camera. Need to slew to Zenith.
  • Risk to close the dome because of strong wind

9.43 Hip42853.acq luci.20121203.0124-0126
  • We decide to slew to the telluric to do not miss the zJ science

9.56 Hip42853_zJ.spec luci.20121203.0129-0130
  • The wind is decreasing, after the telluric we can go back to the target

9.59 PSNJ07250042.acq luci.20121203.0131-0140
  • The acquisintion is tricky due to passing cirrus

10.36 Because of high wind we have SHELL RIP

10.41 PSNJ07250042.acq luci.20121203.0141-0146
  • We need to re-acquire the target due to the problems with the secondary mirror

10.59 PSNJ07250042_HK.spec luci.20121203.0147-0158

12.10 Slew to the zenith to change the camera and perform science integration

12.23 PSNJ07250042_J.img
  • Problems with collimation, we change the guiding star

12.32 PSNJ07250042_J.img luci.20121203.0159-0162

12.37 PSNJ07250042_H.img luci.20121203.0163-0166

12.44 Slew to Turatto_07 SN2012ab
  • Impossible to collimate because the guiding star is to faint compared to the increasing twilight

13:00 Slew to luci night sky flat for Turatto_07
  • H band skyfltas luci.20121203.0168-0175
  • Ks band skyflats luci.20121203.0179-0185
  • The J band skyflats have to be acquired
  • We decide however to reacquire the night sky flats because at the end of the integrations there are cirrus all over the sky.
