INAF queue observing, 2013 Sep 28-29

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


MODS1 is currently available in red or blue grating only.
At the sunset clear sky.
At the beginning of sceintific operations the average seeing on the GCS is 0.6".
Hanging of the Telescope Control GUI. We call the SA. We figure out by specifiyng 'wait for collimation' 'OFF' in the Telescope Specific.
Condensation on the camera. We call J. Morris that have to switch on compressors. These were non-active due to the fire alarm happened in the evening.

  • collimation problems. We ask the TO to slew to a bright star and collimate
  • we are not able to preset. The Telescope Control gui is hanging. The TO try to close the connection between telescope and LUCI.
  • It doesn't work, we have to call the SA. The SA suggest to select wait for collimation "OFF" and figure it out.

07.25 executeLUCI campoA_mos.acq 0084-0086
  • we have CONDENSATION on the acquisition image. But humidity is only 69%!
  • We have to call J. Morris and slew to the Zenith to allow to improve the compressor and shrink condensation.
  • Condensation happened because the compressors where disabled due to the FIRE allarm of the early evening.
  • 0087-0088 test image to verify the presence of condensation. Condensation is gone, we can re-acquire Cresci_8A
