INAF queue observing, 2014 Feb 02-03
Observer: E. Sani, F. Cusano, S. Bisogni, R. Carini
Telescope Operator: D. Gionzales Huerta
Support Astronomer: O. Kuhn on call
At the beginning of the night we stay close because of dewpoint reaching ext temperature.
While we are waiting the TO starts the mirror ventilation.
At the beginning of scientific operations there are clouds passing, 60% humidity and no wind.
Since there are thick clouds we can't observe scientific targets: no collimation (the WFS can't sent corrections to collimate) + no guiding (the GCS can't see a R=12 star).
We try to collimate on a very bright star, this does not work and the TO closes the dome.
We stay closed the rest of the night.
