1:*40 the TO is checking the pointing and collimation 1:57 dimm seeing 1.5 and variable

1:58 slewing to Hip 106817 (Telluric of PLCKG073 - Polletta)
  • dimm seeing 1.1"
  • 2:01 luci1 has a fwhm larger than luci2, but should not affect the effective focus on the detector
  • acq luci1.20181018.0001-0003, luci2.20181018.0001-0003
  • seeing variable at 2:12
  • in luci1 the spectra did not appear on the second slit, problem due to not perfect trasformation between xy and radec plane on guider
  • spec luci1.20181018.0004-0007, luci2.20181018.0004-0007

2:20 slewing to PLCKG073 (Science - Polletta)
  • seeing 1.1 on guider luci2
  • 2:36 seeing increasing at 1.7 we keep going with acquisition
  • acq luci1.20181018.0008-0011, luci2.20181018.0008-0011
  • 2:37 luci1 is not aligned
  • 2:39 seeing very bad now 1.8
  • 2:43 we go with the spectra but the seeing is between 1.5 and 2.3 we keep going to do not waste the time of the alignment, and wait 10 minutes to see if the seeing is improving
  • spec luci1.0012-0015,luci2.0012-0015
  • 2:54 the seeing is in average 2 and stable, we switch to backup program
