Telescope operator : Riccardo Ansaldi
Instrument: PEPSI

Summary

These observations have been performed by Andrew Cardwell with the support of LBT-Italia-obs remotely.

At sunset the sky is clear, but there is ice and snow on the dx shutter door, we can use SX only tonight. We also have pointing restrictions due to wind. The allSky camera is currently down and it was not possible to recover it for tonight. We open at 01:03 UT, but we close again for bad weather at 02:30UT and we re-open at 03:51UT.
