  • seeing 1" and cirrus at 03:36
  • note: we started a bit earlier than planned, thus in the first ~5-10 min (less than 1 exposure) the blue spectra is not in the 1.5" slit
  • seeing 1.1" and cirrus at 03:49
  • 04:11 execBinomods pointJ_mos_4.obs mods1r.0017-0018 , mods1b.0009-0010, mods2r.0017-0018 , mods2b.0009-0010

  • seeing about 1''
  • 05:03 cirrus are increasing

  • 06:15 execBinomods pointJ_mos_6.obs mods1r.0026-0186, mods2b.0018-0174
  • lost 2 min because wrong NIMGS parameter in the script. MaX is 99!!. Changed that, now it goes
  • start exposing at 06:23*
  • seeing 1.1" at 06:40
  • seeing 1.0" at 07:13, thin cirrus
  • seeing 0.9" at 07:13
  • cloud at 09:30, >1mag extinction on guider, still guiding well
  • seeing 0.9" at 09:48, clear again
  • 9:35 MODS2 stack, 9:54 we can restart MODS2
  • 10-10:30 UT 30 min with 0.5 mag extinction
  • seeing 0.9" at 10:33, other bunch of clouds at the horizon worried, confused
  • they did not affect us so much smile
  • 11:33 MODS error:images no displyed, we send red fitsflush
  • 11:33 the loaded stuck at ima mods1r.0157
  • 11:35 we start again the exposure, mods rstar to save the images, but we lost 2 images 158 and 159.
  • 12:00 seeing fluctuations 1"-1.3"
  • 12:36 seeing 0.6
  • 12:39 sky gets bright we stop and prepare for calibrations
