Data Summary

Project_RUN Objects Instrument Configuration ExpTime /Time_tot Images Notes
Decarli PSO119.42 MODS1+2 red grating 1h/0.5h   variable seeing up to ~2" , 3 more exposures due to clouds, 3mag of ext
Decarli PSO186.19 MODS1+2 red grating 0.66/0.33h   variable seeing with peaks at ~2", 1.5mag of ext so we took 2 more exps
Ighina PSJ1505 MODS1+2 red grating 3h/2h   seeing variable between 1" and 2", we took two exposures more. Seeing 0.8-1" in the last two
Ighina PSJ1645 MODS1+2 red grating 1h/1h   seeing ~ 0.8-1.1", we finished the script started the previous nights and we also took one more exposure (the seeing was bad the previous time)
Ighina PSJ1634 MODS1+2 red grating 1.3h/1.3h   seeing ~ 0.8-1"
Ighina PSJ1802 MODS1+2 red grating 1.4h/1.4h   seeing variable, during the first part ~ 1.2", then better; last exposure could have an higher background
calibration bias MODS1+2        
calibration slit flat MODS1+2 red and dual     slit 0.8", 1"
