INAF LBC+MODS+LUCI queue observing, 2012 December 5-6

Observer: E. Sani, F. Cusano, M. Fumana
Telescope Operator: G. Becchetti
Support Astronomer: M. Edwars
Instrument: LUCI1


At the twilight scattered cirrus. Wind speed is 10m/s
At the beginning of the observations the average seeing is 0.6".
According to the S.A. infos, the rotator PA for the mos acquisition (for masks without reference boxes) could be not enough accurate.
During the night cirrus last but with average seeing 0.5"-0.6"

10.15 We perform dark calibrations
  • ./DoDarks luci.20121206.0001-0155
  • DoDarks starts with dark_int.txt, then dark_nor.txt

11:56 Dark script interupted. We need to open dome.

  • mean seeing is 0.6"
  • guide problem: guider timed out. Image luci.20121206.0185.fits can be affected by NO guiding
  • restarting gcs

03:00 we need to acquire again the scientific target problem with guiding we need to call John Hill to fix the problem

03.51 Problem the LUCI software exits the scrip. NOT clear if it is a LUCI problem or a Guider problem. The error message on the GCS is "couldn't pause guide loop"
  • We verify that the last image luci.20121206.01946 is NOT affected by the problem, that appeared just while the telescope was performing the following offset
  • Error message from the IIFGUI Thu Dec 6 03:49:51.517 2012 Offset alert for left LUCIFER: guide loop didn't pause within timeout. Thu Dec 6 03:49:54.582 2012 Offset command failed for left LUCIFER

  • spec_cal_lamp_22.text luci.20121206.0311-0320
  • this first arcs are wrong, we do not know why and acquire them by hand luci.20121206.0321-0330 we double the exposure time of the last five lamp acquisitions
