Details

00:45 start with Skyflats for LBC STD_U+g (LBCblue), V+r (LBCred), PA=0 + PA=180.
Perhaps too many stars in field

  • Seeing 0.7" on image at 10:35
  • stop after 5th STD_U exposure (~ half OB), because elongation in LBC red
  • 11:00 run lbcrangebal + dofpia, X2 again
  • 11:05 Re-start OB 13
  • Seeing 0.6" on image at 11:10
  • after another half of OB13 we stop: stars too elongated due to high elevation
  • Consider OB 13 completed

  • 12:15 OB2
  • 12:20 start twilight. Images offered by the Felice & Andrea associated. Enjoy!
  • Seeing 0.8" on image at 12:30
  • 12:40 OB2 finished

12:40 standard SA101 STD_UBVgr+ VRriz filters in twilight, check first image for apparent problem in U (strange pattern of vertical lines)

morning Skyflats for LBC g +r good. U+V not good. stop

END of the night GOOD night! eehhhh !
