12:50 we start with standard star Feige 110

  • sci mods1r.0009-0011; mods2r.0009-0011 red prism
  • due to clouds the extintion is about 1.5 magnitude.

01:30 Slew to Antoniucci Ves263
  • we have to correct the guiding star
  • acq mods1r.20181212.0012-0014 mods2r.20181212.0012-0014
  • seeing 1.2-1.3 on dimm, 1 mag of extinction due to clouds
  • sci mods1r.0015-0018, mods1b.0004-0007; mods2r.0015-0018, mods2b.0004-0007
  • last seeing measure 1.3 and improving, 0.1 mag extinction

02:15 Slew to Moretti A12new PSO351
  • acq mods1r.20181212.0019-0022 mods2r.20181212.0019-0021 seeing 1.2" on DIMM
  • start sci at 02:33, after rechecking mods1 acquisition
  • sci mods1r.0023-0026; ==mods2r.0022-0025
  • seeing 1.3 variable, 0.5mag extinction at 2:35-2:40
  • first spectra very weak signal
  • seeing 1.1" at 02:58 but still0.3 mag extinction and improvingduring second exposure
  • seeing 1.2" at 03:05, no extinction
  • secondo exposure much brighter, seeing 1.1 no atm extinction at 3:18 UT
  • 03:27 seeing about 1.2"
  • 03:40 take another bino exposure because first one had too high extinction
  • seeing 1.1 no extinction
  • 04:48 dimm seeing between 1.0 and 1.15

* Slew to Moretti A6 0315. The name of the target in the fc (PSO48.91+1.16) is different from one on the proposal (PSO315) !!!
  • acq mods1r.20181212.0027-0029 mods2r.20181212.0026-0028 seeing 1.1" on DIMM
  • sci mods1r.0030; mods2r.0029
  • seeing about 0.9"
  • 04:41 the sky is clear, seeing 0.9"

04:47 since the seeing is stable at 0.8"-0.9"we slew to Fabrizio's program, deep1 target
  • acq mods1r.0031-0032; mods2r.0030-0032
  • on MODS1 the mask is wrong.scripts are ok. Mask is wrong in the cabinet. We lose 15 min to look for the mask,but cannot find.
  • 5:14 send the science only for MODS2, we can not acquire with mods1 because the mask in the cabinet is wrong !!!!!
  • seeing 0.8"
  • 05:30 clouds come
  • 05:35 lost guide star. stop the integration. mods2r.0033, mods2b.0008 are not good.

05:44 even if the sky is almost completly covered we try to acquire a bright target (D75b) of Antoniucci's program
  • acq mods1r.0033-0035; mods2r.0034-0036

05:57 the humidity 100% and the temperature at the due point. we close
