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 cover by clouds. We start with bino LUCI and backup programs. We can not use PEPSI for maintenance.
LBCB is offline due to some problems.

Observer: A. Cardwell

Instrument: LBC

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. The wind is at limit for opening (~18 m/s).
We can open, but we have limitation about the direction of pointing. We can not point to the south so we can not perform the LUCI1-AO program. We start with LBC.

Night duration (12 degree - twilight) 02:55 - 11:55 UT = 9 h 00 m
Observing time: 5h 10min (58%)*

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 sunset the sky is clear. We do not have internet connection to the mountain as the high wind of yesterday damaged the microwave antenna.
For this reason we can not do LUCI-AO observations as there is no AO support. The support astronomer A. Cardwell is driving to the mountain to perform regular observations with LBC. We start with LBC-bino.

Night duration (12 degree - twilight) 02:55 - 11:55 UT = 9 h 00 m

Notes

a- Slight image jump in lbcb.20220424.060013 and lbcr.20220424.060011. Possibly due to TMS?

b- lbcb.063505 is trailed, Andrew and Steve believe it was a guiding (or more likely lack of guiding) issue, see the log for details.

Notes

1-We keep seeing the BCG galaxy in all images except: Gilli LUCI1...67,75,85 should be discarded. Have a look also to images 20...23 maybe they are not good.

2-Rossi g+i: Jump in exposure lbcb.20220425.075210. No sign of a jump in the corresponding lbcr exposure.

3-Too few downloaded pixels error in lbcb.20220425.085441. The positions of chips 3 and 1 have been flipped in the readout, with the exception of the bottom few rows or each.
