INAF queue observing, 2017 Nov 25-26

Observer: F. Cusano, A. Gargiulo
Telescope Operator: S. Allanson
Support Astronomer: B. Rothberg
Instrument: LUCI, MODS, LBC

Summary

This night is shared with TSIP and we end observations at 7:06 UT.
At the sunset the sky is clear.
LUCI1 has still problems so we can not use it, the ad-sec dx is still under checking and can not be used for science so we can not use MODS2 and LUCI2. We start with MODS1.
Last minute communication (00:40) we can use the ad-sec dx for seeing limited observations but not for AO. We keep observing with MODS, we are already configured for it.
At 05:40 the TO has to close the dome for smoke and dust outside. From 9:30 the telescope is available again for INAF because TSIP night was a transit and they lost the right moment.
