1:58 Problem solved

2:17 we slew to Massi program G035.02
  • 2:17 we send the script for Massi standard FS143
  • 2:20 seeing on dimm 1"

  • 2:29 we send the script for Massi target G035.02 (H2)
  • 2:30 seeing on dimm 0.9"
  • 2:50 seeing jumps to 1.6"
  • 2:53 seeing on images 0.8"
  • 3:03 seeing jumps to 1.4"
  • 3:06 seeing on guider 0.8"
  • 3:17 seeing on guider 0.8"
  • 3:33 seeing on guider 0.7"
  • 3:33 humidity rises to 90%
  • due to the variable seeing, we take two more exposures per arm
  • 3:48 humidity is 70%

  • 3:50 we send the script for Massi target G035.02 (Ks)
  • 3:51 seeing on dimm 1.0"
  • luci1.0030.fits is not good

4:03 we slew to Massi program G108.20

  • 6:18 we send the script for Massi standard FS151
  • 6:18 MOS error on LUCI2
  • 6:37 MOS error still persists. Dave suggested to go on with just LUCI1
  • 6:40 we send again the script just for LUCI1 we changed the script in a hurry, so PARTNER and PI_NAME keywords are wrong
