INAF queue observing, 2013 Sep 25-26

Observer: E. Sani, F. Cusano
Telescope Operator: D. Gonzales-Huerta
Support Astronomer: D. Thompson
Instrument: LUCI


MODS1 is currently not available due to problems with the red CCD electronics.
At sunset we have to remain closed due to strong wind.
At the beginning of the observations the sky is clear.
At 5.00 UT we need to close the dome due to strong wind. When the TO tries to open again, the left door turns to be stuck. We need to call J. Urban.
The left door problem was solved, but wind gusts increased again. The TO closed the dome.
