Observer: A. Rossi + R. Carini+ and M. Faccini from Rome
Telescope Operator: S. Allanson
Support Astronomer: D. Thompson
Instrument: MODS

At the sunset the sky is clear. LBTO staff working on a leak in the chiller before sunset. LUCI2 is not available for spectroscopy due to masks-related problems.

  • had to do AFC correction, start again, 5min loss
  • acq luci1.0005-0008 wonderfull allignement nothing to correct, congratulations to Letizia and Jenny for new MOS allignement software
  • DIMM 1.3" at 05:04 UT

  • I can see the spectra in the top and bottom science slits after subtracting the first 2 exposures smile
  • NOTE: the guiding star is not 12.5, it is more likely 15 mag. the bright R band in catalog is probably due to Halpha. Better to use another guiding star
