01:08 running mods calibration for Nascimbeni program; counts are too high, we do again the script using the OT
  • mods1r.0002-0008, mods1b.0002-0007; mods2r.0002-0008,mods2b.0002-0010 do not use
  • 01:21* running again calibration for Nascimbeni, still high counts we do manualy the slits are wide

1:38 starting again flats,
  • mods1r.0009-0014, mods1b.0008-0013; mods2r.0009-0014,mods2b.0011-0016 good flats

2:02 starting arc lamp
  • mods1r.0015-0017, mods1b.0014-0016; mods2r.0015-0017,mods2b.0017-0019 arcs with narrow slits mask

2:18 bias 8k
  • mods1r.0018-0022, mods1b.0017-0021; mods2r.0018-0022,mods2b.0020-0024

2:29 the to is opening the dome

3:00 slewing to Nascimbeni Kelt18
  • acq mods1r.0023-25; mods2r.0023-25
  • dimm seeing 0.8" at 3:03
  • 3:19 starting spec mods1r.0026-160, mods1b.0022-0126; mods2r.0026-0181,mods2b.0025-0136
  • 3:21 max counts below saturation (max~42k)
  • 4:13 dimm seeing 1"
  • 5:17 dimm seeing 0.8"
  • mods1r sometime is hanging before reading out, so there will be more mods2r data than mods1r
  • 7:35 dimm seeing 0.7"
  • 9:02 dimm seeing 1"
  • 10:19 stop the integration transtit completed

10:20 moving to standard star BD+2842
  • acq mods1r.0161-0163; mods2r.0182-0184
  • spec mods1r.0164-0166, mods1b.0127-0129; mods2r.0185-0187,mods2b.0137-0139

12:15 slitless flat dual grating
  • mods1r.0181-0185, mods1b.0139-0148 mods2r.0202-0206, mods2b.0149-0158
