INAF queue observing, 2018 May 12-13

Observer: F. Cusano, A. Gargiulo
Telescope Operator: S. Allanson
Support Astronomer: B. Rothberg (on call)
Instrument: LBC

Summary

At the sunset the sky is clear . The wind is at the limit, with gusts up to 20 m/s. We have restriction in pointing the telescope, e.g we can not point targets at south.
We start with LBC because Gilli target is on the south, with LBC we have more target in different directions
instruments: MODS2 red grating is not available, LUCI2 can be used today
Night duration (12\xB0 el twilight) 3:30- 11:00 UT = 7 h 30m

Observing time: 4h m (53%)

Weather time loss: 3h 30m (47%)

technical time loss 0 (0%)

Details

3:15 wind is slowing down. The OSA prepares LBC for the observations.

3:30 copointing R29
  • 3:32 dohybrid
  • problems in converging
  • dimm seeing 2.0
  • seeing too high for this program. No way to converge. We switch to Palazzi program.
