INAF queue observing, 2014 Dec 18-19

Observer: F. Cusano, A. Marchetti
Telescope Operator: G. Bechetti
Support Astronomer: O. Kuhn
Instrument: MODS, LUCI

Summary

The dome stays closed due to snow.
We performe calibrations.

INAF queue observing, 2014 Dec 19-20

Observer: F. Cusano, A. Marchetti
Telescope Operator: G. Bechetti
Support Astronomer: O. Kuhn
Instrument: MODS

Summary

Clear sky at sunset, humidity 10%.
The TO cannot open the dome at sunset because of snow on the roof.
The snow melted mostly on the left side of the roof, we can not open the right side
that is still covered with snow. We can use only LBT-left.

Summary

The sky is 80% covered with thin cirrus at sunset.
Heavy clouds with some holes and variable seeing up to 2" during all the night,
we observed bright target with short exposure

INAF queue observing, 2014 Dec 21-22

Observer: F. Cusano, A. Marchetti
Telescope Operator: G. Bechetti
Support Astronomer: M. Edwards by phone
Instrument: MODS

Summary

Thin cirrus and clouds at sunset. We decide to use MODS with LBC-red, since the sky subtraction with LUCI can be very hard in these conditions.
We stop observations at 2:30UT the sky is completely covered by clouds.

INAF queue observing, 2014 Dec 22-23

Observer: F. Cusano, A. Marchetti
Telescope Operator: G. Bechetti
Support Astronomer: M. Edwards by phone
Instrument: MODS

Summary

At the sunset clear sky, wind gusts up to 20 m/s. We have to delay the opening.
At 3:04UT wind gust up to 25 m/s. Temperature 1 degree from the dew point. Humidity 90%.
