INAF LBC MODS queue observing, 2013 January 19-20

Observer: M.Faccini, F.Cusano
Telescope Operator: G.Bechetti
Support Astronomer: O. Khun
Instrument: LBC + MODS


Clear sky, seeing 0.8 arcsec, moon at the first quarter. We started with LBC. Problem at the beginning of the night, stars elongated in the blue channel, we tried to fix it manually (more than one hour), but it did not work. We switch to MODS.
