INAF queue observing, 2014 Jan 27-28

Observer: E. Sani, F. Cusano, S. Bisogni, R. Carini
Telescope Operator: G. Becchetti
Support Astronomer: O. Kuhn
Instrument: MODS


Night in shared time with AZ time. We start observations at 07:30 UT
At the beginning of observations we have thin cirrus above the orison (NO direction), low wind ans humidity at 26%.
N.B. The seeing from the GCS is overestimated by 10% because the MODs guider is out of focus.
