Before the sunset the sky was partly cloudy, humidity was at 32% and there was a low wind. Some problems with modsView and modsAlign in the station obs2, after few check it seams to be caused by the Ob directory "Antoniucci Bckup". After the execution of the Antoniucci_bckup OB the sky became clear and the seeing good.
