INAF queue observing, 2022 March 6 - March 7

Observer: B. Rothberg
Telescope Operator: J. Williams
Astronomers from Italy: Felice Cusano, Andrea Rossi
Instrument: MODS, PEPSI

Summary

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

At the sunset the sky is clear. External etemperature -6.80 C, mirror temperature ~-2 C, we decide to not start with LBC as the gradient in tempetature is to high to collimate.
Starting with MODS seeing ~2.5" at 02.05 UT. Switch to PEPSI at 3:45 for bad seeing. At 06:00 seeing improving ~1".

Night duration (12 degree - twilight) 02:15 - 12:45 UT = 10 h 30 m
Observing time: 9h 25min (89.7%)*
Weather time loss: 0h 0min (0%)*
Technical time loss: 1h 05min (10.3%)*
