5:57 slewing to Rossi ESM program, GRB130803A
  • aborted the script, AO preset still not running

6:01 started again Rossi program, GRB130803A
  • 6:04 error during comitting setup, problem with the actuator
  • 6:14 send the script again
  • 6:19 failed acquisition again, Doug Miller is checking

6:38 we try to put the mask in FPU, because in turn-out it warms up LUCI, but we had a problem to commit the setup, the mask is in unknow state

7:25 mask problem solved

7:25 slew to Fiorentino LUCI AO program, Palomar 10 seeing 0.6 !!
