Calibrations LUCI
  • flat+arc Cresci A1 luci1.0001-0014,luci2.0001-0014
  • Saracco, flatarc luci2 luci2.0015-

01:06 TO opens the dome. the deley is due to burst of wind.

01:17 collimation on the target.

1:40 TO closes the dome, gusts of wind up to 22 m/s

02:02 we open again
  • 02:20 problem with the collimation

02:29 start the acquisition of the target of Mancini Hat-P-47

  • seeing about 1.5"
  • seeing variable.
  • 03:38 seeing up to 2.0"
  • fitsflush red (mods1), fistflus blue (mods2). Some images are not recovered.
  • seeing more than 2.0"
  • 04:46 seeing 1.2"-1.8"
  • 04:53 seeinf0.9"-1.7"
  • 4:59* restart the script with mods1-red
  • seeing 1.5'-20''
  • 5:28* restart the script with mods2-blue
  • seeing 1,5" - 2,0"
  • 06:06* restart the sript with mods1-blue
  • seeing 1.1" - 1.8"
  • 06:21 elevation 87:19 over the limits for the guiding of the telescope. Now we are in tracking mode and it is possible to loose the target.
  • 06:28 we transit the meridian it seems we haven' lost data till now
  • 06:35 restart guiding. Apparently no data lost
  • 07:08 MODS1 BLue CCCD temperature of -11 C exceede -90C -detector warming up!
  • 07:09 MODS1 Blue CCD temperature is back normale range
  • 07:10 seeing 1 - 1,2"
  • 07:10 restart MOds1 red grating
  • 07:35 stop the integration

07:39 slew to Moretti program, target A6
  • acq mods1r-0221-0223
  • we abort and take an image to verify the the star is already in the slit mods1r.0024=
  • sci mods1r.0025
  • seeing about 1.0"
  • 08:00 seeing jump to 1.7" and decreases to 1.1"
  • seeing very variable up to 1.8", but the mean seeing is 1.2"

08:30 problem with the observing procedure. * We start again the acquisition, offset failed
  • we start again the acquisition error during the preset, we send again the script
  • 09:17 error again
  • 09:18 try again the preset and it failed
  • The problem dipend on the script AcQMOds that does not ignore "syncoffset" when only MODS1 or MODS2 was used, even if it should do it.

09:20 slew to De Carli program. we try the new procedure, but we are not sure that it is going to work.
  • we try to acquire the field in the mos using just a slit, as in the case of the telluric with LUCI, but it failes.
  • ERROR: Slit mask ID592104 is a multi-object mask!
  • You must perform a MOS mask alignemtn using an mms. ModsAlign aborting

9:35 switch to LUCI

09:50 telluric nisini field 4

  • 12:02 seeing 1.2"

12:17 stop the integration, airmass 2.00, the images are good but not the last * slew to Antoniucci target V900 mon * 12;25 check pointing

12:27 send again the script
  • acq luci2.0070-0073
