23:45 We start with SOFI
23:50 Image analysis and telescope focus
00:05 Some bumps with the visitor computer, it seems fixed now
00:10 OGLE16euo, JHK, seeing ~0.7”
01:35 Telescope focus
01:40 Feige 110, flux standard for SOFI, seeing ~0.8”
01:55 Hip10990, telluric standard for SN2016hnk, seeing ~0.7”
02:00 SN2016hnk, BG, seeing ~0.8”
03:25 We have continuous problems with the p2pp system, the loading of the OBs from the visitor terminal to the TO’s terminal is either extremely slow or sometimes crashes. We try to find a solution, but we waste some time.
03:30 SN2016hnk, JHK, seeing ~0.9”
04:55 Hip6206, telluric standard for SN2016gkg, seeing ~0.7”
