Summary

At the sunset is raining, the dome remain closed all the night for bad weather.
We can not perform calibrations because the telescope is wrapped and
parked at horizon to avoid dripping of water on the instruments.

Night duration (12\xB0 el twilight) 18:20-6:00 ( 02:30-11:50 UT) = 11 h 40m

Observing time: 0 hrs 0 m

Weather time loss: 11 hrs *40m (100%)*

technical time loss 0 m
