Observer: F. Cusano, A. Gargiulo
Telescope Operator: S. Allanson
Support Astronomer: O. Kuhn

At the sunset the sky is clear. LUCI2 is not available for spectroscopy due to masks-related problems.


Night duration (12 degree el twilight) 2:00 - 12:20 UT = 10 h 20m

Observing time: 9h 46min (95%)

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