Details

00:10 wake up MODS, take test images mods1r.20160113.0001, mods1b.20160113.0001

13:14 flat for MODS imaging (Antoniucci program) mods1r.20160113.0002-0008, mods1b.20160113.0001-0011

00:58 start sky flat

01:56 seeing about 0.8'', start with Saracco program
  • acqMODS mods.4.XLSms2.acq mods1r.20160113.0009-0012
  • execMODS mods.4.XLSms2_4.obs mods1r.20160113.0013-0016
  • seeing about 1.0''

02:23 * execMODS mods.4.XLSms2_5obs mods1r.20160113.0017-0019
  • seeing about 1.0''-1.2'''
  • 04:00 acquisition of the third image. seeing is getting worse (peaks to 1.8'' or 2'' )because the airmass is greater than 1.4, however the mean seeing is 1.2-1.3''
  • 4:18 stop the integration, the seeing is too bad

04:20 switch to LBC

04:39 run the Phot Standard S98

04:56 seeing is 0.8''-0.9''. we slew to Castellano program
  • dofpia and copointin
  • during the copointing the seein is rises to 1.5, out of spec, we slew to Dalessandro program, dofpia and copointing

05:27 run science Tr5_BVI_1.ob
  • now the seeing is very good, we remain on this target to verify the stability of the seeing
  • seeing 0.6''-0.8''
  • 05:48* run science Tr5_BVI_2.ob
  • seeing 0.9''
  • 06:09 dofpia
  • 06:15 run science Tr5_BVI_2b.ob
  • seeing 0.8
  • 06:33 un science Tr5_BVI_3.ob
  • mean seeing 0.8''-0.9'' but a peak rises to 1.1''
  • some images are elongated
  • 06:54 dofpia
  • 06:58 run science Tr5_BVI_3b.ob *seeing 0.7''-0.8'''
  • 07:06 Tr5_BVI_4.ob
  • seeing 0.6''-0.7''
  • 07:27 Tr5_BVI_4b.ob
  • seeing 0.9'''
  • 07:35 dofpia, copointing Tr5_USNO_P5.ob
  • run science Tr5_BVI_5.ob
  • seeing 0.9''- 1.00''
  • 8:00 LBC stops, and gives a message of error, filter wheel didn\x92t move to where it needed to be. We start again the integration.
  • seeing 1.00'
  • Tr5_BVI_5b.ob
  • seeing 0.8''-1'''

08:20 slew to Bellazzini program, target D
  • dofpia, copointing 2015B_1_D_pointing.ob
  • 08:29 run scientific target 2015B_1_D.ob
  • seeing ~ 1

08:43 slew to Marconi program
  • dofpia, copointing IZw18_copointing.ob
  • 08:53 run scientific target IZw18_2.ob
  • seeing ~ 0.9
  • during the integration the tracking stops, but the images are good

09:07 slew to Castellano program target A
  • dofpia, copointing WT10_318.ob
  • 09:19 run scientific target Castellano_MACSJ0717_UV_6.ob
  • seeing between 0.9 and 1
  • 09:39 stop the ob. The last images are a little bit elongated (but the elepticity is less than 0.1 so they are good) due to a tracker problem. The TO restarts LBC
  • run again the ob Castellano_MACSJ0717_UV_6.ob , seeing ~ 1
  • 09:55 stop again the integration, the images are elongated, run dofpia
  • 10:00 run the science ob Castellano_MACSJ0717_UV_6.ob. Seeing between 0.8 and 1. Some images may have seeing between 1.1 and 1.2

10:42 slew to Annibali target
  • dofpia, copointing DDO68_copointing.ob
  • run science ob DDO68_3_new.ob
  • seeing between 0.8 and 1
  • 11:24 run dofpia
  • 11:31 run science ob DDO68_4_new.ob
  • seeing ~ 0.8
  • 11:57 failed guiding, the last image are elongated, TO restart LBC
  • 12:04 run DDO68_5_new.ob
  • seeing 0.8''-0.9'''
  • 12:35 dofpia
  • 12:40 DDO68_2_new.ob (complete the second ob begun yesterday)
  • seeing ~ 0.8''. we have taken 6 images, the last with airmas> 1.3
  • 13:05 run the calibration ob given by PI: DDO68_calib
