Details

01:40 we begin the skyflats with LBC

02:13 dohybrid
  • the mirrors are not perfectly thermalized, the collimations is not very good, after the copointing we will do again the dofpia

02:24 copointing photometric standard star S113

02:31 SA suggest us to do again dohybrid instead dofpia

02:40 run the ob for the phot std S113
  • the stars are elongated

03:02 slew to Annibali program, target R43
  • dofpia, /X2
  • copointing * mean seeing 1.00''

03:20 run NGC6503_1.ob
  • mean seeing 1.00''
  • 03:37 mean seeing 0.9''

03:45 dofpia
  • run NGC6503_2.ob
  • 04:04 mean seeing 1.07''
  • 04:09 mean seeing 0.97''

04:22 run NGC6503_3.ob
  • 04:35 re sent script due to error in the execution. everything frozen on the blue side. problem with rotator
  • 04: 36 stop lbc software

04:45 problem with the power line resolved.
  • dofpia

04:50 run NGC6503_3.ob
  • mean seeing 0.8'', airmass 1.55
  • 05:11 mean seeing 1.0'''
  • 05:17 seeing 1.3''

05:18 slew to Cusano program, target NW1
  • preset
  • dofpia
  • copointing, seeing 0.7''

05:35 run NW-1_1.xml
  • 05:44 run NW-2_1.xml, mean seeing 1.00''
  • 05:54 run NW-3_1.xml, mean seeing 1.00''

06:02 dofpia

06:09 run NW-1_2.xml, mean seeing 0.7''
  • 06:19 run NW-2_2.xml, seeing 0.8''-0.9''
  • 06:28 run NW-3_2.xml seeing 0.8''-0.9''

06:38 dofpia

06:42 run NW-1_3.xml, mean seeing 0.9''
  • 06:52* run NW-2_3.xml, mean seeing 0.8''-0.9''
  • These images show some halos due to not perfect optical collimations, we do the dohybrid
  • 07:09 run NW-3_3.xml, seeing 0.7''-0.8''

07:25 NW-1_4.xml, mean seeing 0.8''
  • 07:34 NW-2_4.xml mean seeing 0.8''
  • 07:42 NW-3_4.xml mean seeing 0.8''

07:51 dofpia

07:55 NW-1_5.xml
  • 07:05 NW-2_5.xml
  • 08:13 obs4 (where we are working) is very slow, we change to obs2
  • 08:15 NW-3_5.xml, mean seeing 0.8''-0.9''

08:26 dofpia

08:33 NW-1_6.xml, mean seeing 0.7''
  • 08:43 NW-2_6.xml, mean seeing 0.7''
  • 08:52 NW-3_6.xml, mean seeing 0.65''

09:02 slew to phot standard Galadi, preset failed, the TO have to unwrap
  • 09:07 send again the preset
  • dofpia
  • run the std, seeing about 0.5''-0.6''

09:30 slew to Annibali program, target R4
  • preset
  • dofpia
  • run KK16_calib
  • copointing run KK16_point, problems with the copointing, the copointing source is not in the center of the field, the offset is too big.
  • we make the copointing with the right coordinates, we send the preset again but it failes
  • 10:05 send the preset again, dohybrid
  • copointing

10:27 run KK16_3.ob
  • 10:40 seeing about 0.75''
  • 10:55 KK16_2.ob (just the half)
  • seeing about 0.1''

11:10 slew to target R5, KK17
  • dofpia
  • 11:17 run KK17_1.ob
  • 11:28 seeing about 0.9''
  • 11:33 seeing about 0.6''-0.7''
  • 11:44 run KK17_2.ob
  • 11:51 seeing about 0.9''-1.0''
  • 11:58 peaks of seeing to 1.3'' (on DIMM)
  • 12:02 seeing about 1.00''

12:09 slew to Photometric Standard, SA95
