INAF queue observing, 2013 March 31-April 1

Observer: E. Sani, M. Faccini, A. Bongiorno
Telescope Operator: S. Anderson
Support Astronomer: M. Edwards
Instrument: LUCI img - MODS

Summary

Cirrus above the orizon (W) at beginning of the operations, with low wind. The initial seeing is 0.7 on the GCS.
During the night the average seeing is 1.0 and the sky does remain mostly clear.
After ~15min of the 8th exposure for the program Annibali_23A, we have a shell RIP of the secondary mirror. While the telescope is tracking, the WFS does not work, we thus pause the script. When the TO solves the problem, we are authorized to resume the script. We verify the shell RIP did not affect the scientific frame.
