Summary

Due to the covid-19 pandemic situation these observations have been performed by LBTO personel
through the indications of LBT Italian observers (A. Rossi and F. Cusano) connected from Italy.

At the sunset the sky is clear, weather conditions look good. We could open only at sunset, we start with PEPSI.
From the beginning of the night the seeing was between 2-4", at 5:30 the seeing starts to improve at level of 1-1.4".
We switch to LBC.

Summary

Due to the covid-19 pandemic situation these observations have been performed by LBTO personel
through the indications of LBT Italian observers (A. Rossi and F. Cusano) connected from Italy.

At the sunset the sky is clear, we start with LUCI1-AO then we switched to LBC. Clear-sky night although after the first hour we had bad seeing probably because of the wind.
