Observers: Pierre-François Léget, Nicolas Chotard & Marine Ducrot
TAT: Nancy Elias-Rosa, Joe Polshaw, Stefan Taubenberger

Photometric. No sign of clouds all night and the seeing is consistently around 0.5".

----

CALIBRATIONS:
    - 19:00UT - In the control room. Weather looks good.
    - 21:00UT - 1x PESSTO_bias & 1x PESSTO_calib


PRE-OBSERVATIONS:
    - 23:45UT - Sunset
    - 00:00UT - Skyflats: UVi
    - 00:20UT - Focussing & image analysis
    - 00:40UT - SPECTROSCOPIC STANDARD: VMA2. Seeing 0.6", Airmass 1.24
    - 00:55UT - PHOT STD: PG0231 (UgBVRriz): Seeing 0.6", Airmass 1.25


SCIENCE-OBSERVATIONS:
    - 01:10UT - ASASSN-14jb: Follow up, 2100s gm13 spectrum. Seeing 0.6", Airmass 1.6
    - 01:55UT - OGLE-2014-SN-189: Classification. Seeing 0.5", Airmass 1.45.
      - Took a spectrum but hard to classify with SNID.
    - 02:20UT - OGLE-2013-SN-100: Photometry. 9x200s in each BV band. Seeing 0.5", Airmass 1.45
    - 03:30UT - TPhE: Standar star. Photometry. Seeing 0.4", Airmass 1.5.
    - 03:45UT - GD71: Standar star. Spectro. Seeing 0.6", Airmass 1.5.
      - problem during the exposure which didn't start. Got a bit late at this point.
      - Apparently because of some electric problem that they had during the day.
    - 04:20UT - LSQ14gie: Classification. Seeing 0.5", Airmass 1.1.
      - Bright target on the edge of a galaxy.
      - Most likely a pre-maximum (-1/2 days) normal SN Ia according to SNID, with a redshift of 0.073
    - 05:00UT - LSQ14gfb: Follow up spectro. Gm13. Seeing 0.4", Airmass 1.3.
      - Same problem as earlier, starting the exposure a bit later than expected
