02:24 the sky lightly better, we try to observe back-up targets. Slew to telluric for XZtau Antoniucci, HD 24879
  • LUCI2 error, no mask loaded, Dave Thomson will take a look
  • We will use LUCI1 only. created LUCI-1 only script, 10 min lost
  • 02:44 start acquisition
  • acq luci1.0053-0056
  • sci luci1.0057-0064

03:04 slew to the target XZ Tau (slit 1.0'')
  • 03:06 we cancel the preset, to fix the problem of LUCI2 the telescope has to be at the zenit

03:21 problem fixed, re start the science of XZ Tau
  • the target is too near to the moon, we have to change target.

03:30 slew to RW Aur (slit 0.75'')
  • cheking pointing
  • 03:36* start acquisition
  • acq luci1.0065-0067; luci2.0053-0055
  • 03:42 guide lost, too many clouds, we stop.

03:55 sky completed covered
  • 03:59 closed to clouds

calibrations arc MODS2 blue only mods2.0001-0006 problems with mods1 and mods2. We can not continue the calibrations!!!!!

  • arc+flat luci1.0068-0083, luci2.0056-0072 HKspec, lambda=1.93, slit 1.0'', Gilli, Mignoli luci2 to be repeated
  • arc+flat luci1.0084-0099, ==luci2.0073-0087==HKspec, lambda=1.93, slit 0.75'', Saracco , to be repeated
  • arc+flat luci1.0100-0113, luci2.0088-00106 zjspec, lambda=1.175, slit 0.75'', Antoniucci, to be repeated
  • arc+flat luci1.0114-0127, luci2.0107-0120 zjspec, lambda=1.175, slit 1.0'', Antoniucci
  • ima flat luci1.0133-0152, luci2.0126-0145 H and Ks, Palazzi 31, GRB161007A

07:11 wind exceeds the limit of 21.6 m/s

07:53 start again the calibrations with MODS
  • flat for the standard in blue only with MODS2 ==mods2b.0009-0011== we take images but mods2 has problem in this channel, we can not continue in blue or dual grating.
  • Also the blue channel of MODS1 has problems, it not lock on, we can not do the calibrations dual grating
  • flat for the standard in red only mods1r.0007-0009 MODS1
  • also MODS2 red doesn't work!!!!

10:00 problems with mods1 fixed
  • flats for standard dual grating mods1r.0010-0012, mods1b.0001-0006
