INAF queue observing, 2017 Nov 22-23

Observer: F. Cusano, A. Gargiulo
Telescope Operator: S. Allanson
Support Astronomer: B. Rothberg
Instrument: LBC

Summary

At the sunset the sky is clear.
The support astronomer reported us that LBC observations at elevations lower than 30 degree are not feasable due to possible damage to the secondaries

Summary

At the sunset the sky is clear.
We started with LUCI, but we had immediately a problem in the mask exchange of LUCI1, LUCI1 will be offline for the rest of the night. At 1:42 we switched to MODS.

Summary

This night is shared with TSIP and we end observations at 7:06 UT.
At the sunset the sky is clear.
LUCI1 has still problems so we can not use it, the ad-sec dx is still under checking and can not be used for science so we can not use MODS2 and LUCI2. We start with MODS1.
Last minute communication (00:40) we can use the ad-sec dx for seeing limited observations but not for AO. We keep observing with MODS, we are already configured for it.
At 05:40 the TO has to close the dome for smoke and dust outside. From 9:30 the telescope is available again for INAF because TSIP night was a transit and they lost the right moment.

Summary

We have a shared night, the first half will be Eng time and we should start observations at 07:06. At the sunset the sky is completely covered by clouds.
At 7:06 the dome stay closed for high wind (23km/s).
