MODS CALIBRATIONS for tomorrow missing:

01:42 Slew to STD G191 dual grating
  • acq mods1r.20200130.0016-0018, mods2r.20200130.0016-0018
  • sci mods1r.0019-0020,mods1b.0015-16 mods2r.0019-20,mods2b.0016-17 dual 5
  • sci mods1r.0021-0022,mods1b.0017-18 mods2r.0021-22,mods2b.0018-19 dual 1.2"

02:18 Slew to Mannucci program, target J0415
  • acq mods1r.0023-0025, mods2r.0023-0025
  • DIMM seeing 1.5" variable
  • sci mods1r.0026,mods1b.0019 mods2r.0026,mods2b.0020
  • seeing down to 0.9 at the end
  • we noticed that in MODS1 the slit is slighty tilted, i.e. not exactly vertical respect to the detector

02:43 Slew to Rossi DDT program, target SN2018ibb
  • acq mods1r.0027-0029, mods2r.0027-0029
  • DIMM seeing 0.9"
  • sci mods1r.0030-31,mods1b.0020-21 mods2r.0030-31,mods2b.0021-22

03:33 Slew to Mannucci program, target J0415
  • acq mods1r.0032-0035, mods2r.0032-0035
  • DIMM seeing 1.0"
  • sci mods1r.0036,mods1b.0022 mods2r.0036,mods2b.0023-

03:58 Slew to Belladitta, target PS0J0944 +83
  • DIMM seeing 2.0" with some passing cirrus
  • acq mods1r.0037-0039, mods2r.0037-0039
  • sci mods1r.0040-0046, mods2r.0040-0045
  • 4th exposure on mods2r is lost for unknown reason (mods2 was frozen, after red expdone it jumped to exp #5)
  • 13 min loss
  • we take another 780 exp
  • seeing 0.9", but huumidity 90%

06:00 Slew to Mannucci program,

06:05 close due to humidity 95%

06:45 The humidity dropped and we can open again the telescope. Unfortunately we have some problems with the start-up of LBC. Investigations are on-going.

07:30 There are newtork and communication problem with the systems of LBC because the power supply is dead. There is not the possibility to recover it during the night. Finally we lost ~45 minutes for humidity.

07:35 For this reason, we decide to switch again to MODS.

08:03 We are moving on the Antoniucci program and we are pointing IRAS06297+10
  • DIMM seeing 1.1"
  • acq mods1r.0050-0051, mods2r.0049-0050
  • sci mods1r.0053-56,mods1b.0023-26 mods2r.0052-5,mods2b.0024-27

08:45 We are changing instrument. We use only LBC-Red. LBC-Blue has communication problem. Can be solved only during day time
  • 10 min loss

09:30 Slew to Schimidt field J1149+2813,
  • Red Only OB created with r i z imaging
  • seeing 1" on image
  • dofpia, X2, RedOnly
  • copointing with ptautoadjust
  • 09:40 redonly_riz_1
  • 0.8" on image at 09:50
  • dofpia, RedOnly
  • 10:15 redonly_riz_2
  • we are very high, so due to high rotation collimation is not perfect: so the next 20 min data have star not perfectly round
  • 1.2-1.5" on image at 10:35
  • dofpia cannot be run, we are to high, but was not so bad (because seeing is not good) let's tae few more images
  • redonly_riz_2 (repeat the OB#2)
  • 1.0-1.15" on image at 11:12
  • dofpia, RedOnly
  • 11:23 redonly_riz_3
  • 0.9-0.95" on image at 11:34
  • 0.9-1.1" on image at 11:42
  • dofpia, RedOnly
  • 11:55 redonly_riz_4
  • 0-7"-0.9" on image at 12:05
  • ~1.05" on image at 12:18 and 12:25
  • dofpia, RedOnly at 12:25
  • 0.7" on image at 12:48
  • 12:36 redonly_riz_6
  • 13:06 redonly_riz_7
  • redonly_riz_5 and 8 TBD
