-- FeliceCusano - 31 May 2019

INAF queue observing, 2019 May 31- June 01

Observer: F. Cusano
Telescope Operator: S. Allanson
Support Astronomer: O. Kuhn (on call)
Instrument: LBC

At the sunset the sky is clear. We start with LBC. For a moth in LBC-B we switched to LUCI at 5:20. The OSA performed some test on the stability of LUCI


Night duration (12 degree el twilight) 3:23 - 11:11 UT = 7 h 48m

Observing time: 5h 51min (75%)

Weather time loss: 0h 0min (0%)

technical time loss 1h *57min (25%)

01:34 error intializing LBC, LBC B rotator error
  • 10:43 problem solved turning off and then on the LBC*

01:35 starting dark with LUCI
  • 10:36 mos error on luci2
  • 2:09 problem solved, starting dark for Moretti, Telluric_Moretti, Casasola, Telluric_Casasola
  • the luc1 dark are completed, only for 4 dark of Moretti are good for luci2

2:30 the TO opens the dome

2:48 starting sky flat g; z
  • some r and i also but counts are low

3:12 slewing to Annibali R27
  • 3:16 dohybrid
  • 3:32 copointing
  • 3:27 calibration ob UGCA276_calib, fwhm on images 0.8-1"
  • 3:31 starting science UGCA276_1, fwhm on images 0.9-1.1, some stars in the blue chanel are elongated we stop at 3:40 for dofpia
  • 3:41 dofpia
  • 3:45 sending again UGCA276_1, fwhm on images 0.7-0.9"
  • 4:10 dofpia
  • 4:14 sending UGCA276_2, fwhm on images 0.7-1.0", stars in the blue images are still bit elongated, but the seeing is good and the red channel looks ok, stop at 4:34 the star on blue images look still elongated
  • 4:34 dofpia
  • 4:40 sending again UGCA276_2, we take some images more, some of the previous were affected by elongation in the blue channel
  • 4:48 images looks ok now fhwm 0.7-0.8", but the first lbc-b image have a strange spot between ccd2 and ccd3, red image still ok
  • 4:57 stop integration the spot is still there, it is maybe a moth out of focus, the to and osa try to move the filter wheel
  • 5:09 starting again UGCA276_2, moth is still there
  • moth is still there we change instrument we switch to LUCI

5:21 switching to LUCI

5:48 Olga is performing dither test for the transformation of LUCI

6:42 slewing to Casasola program we start with the telluric
