  • luci2.20170928.0023-0027

19:07 rain stop, but clouds at horizon. We wait for them to move away before opening the dome

*darks Antoniucci PVCep Dit xndit 60x1, read-out mer.

  • luci1.20170928.0029-0033
  • luci2.20170928.0033-0037

19:59 we open the dome

03:30 we slew to telluric Hip 116229 (from V733) for PVCep (its telluric is too bright K~6), Antoniucci 8 program
  • luci2 error just after preset
  • luci1.20170928.0034-0035 useless

03:33 clouds again TO is checking if to close 04:20 misunderstanding , we lost 20 min because we thought we were closed for clouds.

04:20 we start again telluric, seeing 1.1"
  • acq luci1.20170928.0036-0038
  • acq luci2.20170928.0038-0040
  • 04:35 seeinf about 0.8''-0.9''
  • 04:50 error due to unstable wavelength center, lost 10 min
  • sci luci1.20170928.0039-0046 zJ - HK
  • sci luci2.20170928.0041-0049 zJ - HK check one position too much due to above error

04:53 slew to V733 Cep
  • acq luci1.20170928.0047-0049
  • acq luci2.20170928.0050-0052
  • 05:10 LUCI stuck!!!! Luci2 loses the guide stars for the clouds, it can not collimate so it can not take image, LUCI1 can guiding and goes on with the script.
  • 05:17 TO closes the Dome due to the clouds, Temperature and humidity more than limits

calibrations with LUCI
  • flats for Rossi luci1.0055-59, luci2.0058-0062

calibration for Antoniucci
  • flats zj ==luci1.0062-0066,luci2.0063-0067==without flexure compensation
  • arc zj Ne luci1.0067-0068, luci2.0069-0070 without flexure compensation
  • arc Ar luci1.0069-0070, luci2.0071-0072 without flexure compensation
  • flats HKspec ==luci1.0071-0075==without flexure compensation
  • arc Ne luci1.007-0079 without flexure compensation
  • arc Ar luci1.0078-0079 without flexure compensation
  • arc Xe luci1.0080-0081 without flexure compensation
  • it has not been possible to do the calibrations in LUCI2, the instrument stuck with this filter HKspec and the wavelength=1.93
