-- SimonaPaiano - 31 Jan 2022

INAF queue observing, 2022 January 30 - January 31

Observer: Dave Thompson
Telescope Operator: Steve Allanson
Astronomers from Italy: Simona Paiano, Ester Marini (Felice Cusano and Andrea Rossi)
Instrument: MODS


Due to the covid-19 pandemic situation these observations have been performed by LBTO personel
through the indications of LBT Italian observers (F. Cusano, A. Rossi, S. Paiano and E. Marini) connected from Italy.

We plan to perform MODS observations during all night (in case of clouds or high seeing we plan to switch to PEPSI).

Mostly clear night, but high humidity at the sunset that prevents the observations.
The observations started from 07:00UT

Night duration (12 degree - twilight) 01:45UT - 13:20 UT = 12 h 05m
Observing time: 6h 38min (54.9%)*
Weather time loss: 5h 27min (45.1%)*
Technical time loss: 0h 00min (0%)*
